AV-Test.org Real World & Dynamic Malware Detection Tests

In February 2011, the independent IT test organization AV-Test.org conducted a comprehensive test of 26 of the most popular antivirus solutions. All the solutions were subjected to ‘Real World’ testing that involved blocking infection attempts from malicious websites, as well as dynamic testing – detecting malware by analyzing its behavior as it launches. Additionally, the performance of each solution was tested, including its ability to unpack archives and to avoid false positives. All of the solutions tested were installed on computers running Microsoft Windows 7 32-bit.

Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 demonstrated excellent results, neutralizing 100% of the ‘Real World’ threats and detecting all of the threats in the dynamic and WildList categories. The Kaspersky Lab product was the only solution to detect, block and remove all of the dynamic threats in the test. Kaspersky Lab’s solution was also highly commended for its exceptional performance and success in unpacking all types of archives.
