Kaspersky Lab Products for Business Take First Place in Dennis Technology Labs Testing

Woburn, MA – October 30, 2013 - Kaspersky Lab announces today that Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business and Kaspersky Small Office Security have both earned first place in the quarterly independent test performed by Dennis Technology Labs. The solutions were tested in categories for corporate security solutions and small business solutions, respectively.

During the Enterprise Anti-Virus Protection test, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business scored 1,009 points out of a possible 1,048, earning first place, and the highest AAA rating. The Kaspersky Lab product detected 100 percent of the cyber threats launched by Dennis Technology Labs — a result that no other participants were able to achieve. In the Legitimate Software Ratings scenario, which tests whether the security solutions produce false positives for legitimate applications, the Kaspersky Lab product earned 709 points, compared to an overall test average of 679.

During the Small Business Anti-Virus Protection test, Kaspersky Small Office Security came out on top and was the only solution to earn an AAA rating. During testing, the product detected 98 percent of threats, and earned 725 points in the Legitimate Software Ratings test.

A 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 operating system was used during testing. The test computers were equipped with popular software programs which often have targeted vulnerabilities, such as Adobe Flash Player, Adobe Reader, and Oracle Java.

Kaspersky Lab products regularly demonstrate their effectiveness against malware in independent testing. Most recently, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business earned five stars and the “best buy” rating from SC Magazine.

This summer, the independent organization AV-TEST confirmed that Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business counters all online threats, including those that have yet to be added to antivirus databases. In the spring of this year, Virus Bulletin also awarded Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business the VB100 certificate after the solution blocked all threats it encountered without generating any false positives.

More details about the test results for business security solutions for the third quarter of 2013 can be found on Dennis Technology Lab’s website.

“In the event of a successful cyber-attack, a company could potentially incur major damages, including reputation damages and business interruptions that lead to a complete suspension of operations. Often, the objective of cybercriminals is to get their hands on confidential information about clients or the intellectual property of an organization. That’s why it is critical to protect the corporate environment using solutions whose effectiveness has been proven by independent studies.”
