The Kaspersky Lab solution returned an effectiveness
level of 97 percent, scoring 388 out of a possible 400 points. The
effectiveness of the solutions in the test was determined by the ability to
react to threats in real-time, and to find and block threats during antivirus
scanning. The number of false positives was also taken into account. The
results showed that Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 missed only one threat
(while others missed 5.7 on average) and returned just one false positive (average
3.5). Dennis Technology Labs used 100 of the most urgent malware samples which
were currently in use ‘in the wild’ at the time of testing.
