Twice a year the renowned Austrian research laboratory
AV-Comparatives analyzes the level of detection of on-demand scanning of
anti-virus products. Based on the results, products are given one of
the following classifications: Advanced +, Advanced, and Standard. Since
the very first time this test was conducted (in February 2004)
Kaspersky Lab products have held the status of "Advanced +", an
extraordinary result compared to the performances of other tested
Looking at the graph, it might seem that there is little
difference between the level of protection offered by Kaspersky Lab
solutions and the level of detection offered by other solutions.
However, the antivirus solutions were tested using a collection that
consisted of hundreds of thousands of malicious programs, which means
that even a small difference in the outcome equals thousands of
malicious programs that were missed by other antivirus products.
