The high level of malware detection by Kaspersky Lab products is
attained by a combination of signature technology and proactive
detection. To ensure that the signature method is effective, an
antivirus solution developer has to respond extremely quickly to the
outbreak of new malicious code.
Kaspersky Lab’s rapid response times to new threats was confirmed
during testing by the AV-Test.org research group for PC World magazine.
The test showed that Kaspersky Lab’s response time to the outbreak of
new malicious programs was less than two hours, while the nearest
competitor reacted to new threats in 2-4 hours.
