Dennis Technology Labs Names Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 the Best Solution in its Class
Woburn, MA –October 26, 2012 – Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of security
and threat management solutions, is pleased to announce that Kaspersky Internet
Security 2012 was ranked as the best performing product in the Home Anti-Virus
Protection category of Dennis Technology Labs’ comprehensive
assessment of Internet security suites. Including
products from eight top security vendors, the independent testing was conducted
in the summer of 2012 and placed the Kaspersky Lab’s then-current product as
the leader in its class.
The overall score
for the Kaspersky Lab solution was an impressive 390.5 out of a possible 400 – the highest score among all home user
solutions tested, earning Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 Dennis Technology
Labs’ top AAA award.
testing focused primarily on the ability of each software suite to protect users
from real-life Internet threats. Each product was pitted against known
malicious websites to check how effectively the products prevented users from
accessing these dangerous sites. The tests also evaluated each product’s
ability to detect and neutralize threats trying to infect the system, and for
removing malware from already-infected systems.
results of this test placed the Kaspersky Lab’s solution in first place with a
near-perfect score of 298 out of 300 – the average for all products tested was
less than 240. Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 was the only product that
successfully prevented all threats from compromising the system, scoring 100
out of 100. The analysts also carried out false positive testing, in which
blocking a legitimate application was deemed more serious than issuing a
warning. This was not an issue for Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 which generated
a small number of false warnings without blocking legitimate software, scoring
92.5 points out of 100.
the Dennis Technology Lab testing concluded in August, Kaspersky Lab announced the latest
versions of its consumer software for 2013.
The current version of Kaspersky Internet Security includes all the
protection and features evaluated by Dennis Technology Labs, and includes new
enhancements. Two of the most notable
enhancements in Kaspersky Internet Security are Safe Money - Kaspersky Lab’s unique technology designed to protect the
user’s money when shopping and banking online – and Automatic Exploit Prevention –
which monitors and protects against vulnerabilities in out-of-date programs
installed on your PC.
