products received the highest AAA rating in all three of Dennis Technology Labs’
test categories – Home Anti-Virus Protection, Small Business Anti-Virus
Protection and Enterprise Anti-Virus Protection, in the first quarter of 2014.
Testing conducted by Dennis Technology Labs assesses the capabilities of
various antivirus solutions in conditions that are made as realistic as
possible. The testing involves an analysis of how the products react to the
very latest live threats. Two aspects were assessed in all three categories: protection
rating, which showed how well the products handled malware, and legitimate software
rating, which showed how effectively they handled non-malicious programs. The
ideal anti-malware suite was expected to block all threats and allow all
legitimate programs to run. Products scored points for successfully blocking
threats, but lost points for any false positives. The overall scores were
converted into one of the following ratings: AAA, AA, A or B.
Kaspersky Internet Security 2014was the top performer in the Home
Anti-Virus Protection category, correctly identifying all of the legitimate
programs, blocking 98 percent of the malware and neutralizing the remaining 2
percent. The Kaspersky Lab solution received the highest number of points during
testing and was awarded an AAA rating.
