tests assessed how well security solutions could identify and
block malicious programs. The results showed that Kaspersky Mobile Security
successfully blocked 99.29 percent of the 2,545 malicious applications used in
the test. The average detection rate among all the solutions tested was 96
percent. In addition, Kaspersky Lab’s software did not return a single false
experts also looked at the impact of security products on smartphone
performance. Kaspersky Lab’s solution was recognized as economical in terms of
both CPU resource consumption and the use of Internet connections. As a result,
Kaspersky Mobile Security was awarded a perfect six points for usability.
The testing also considered what types of additional features were offered
in each solution, such as anti-theft measures, extra browser protection, and
call and message filtering. Kaspersky Mobile Security was among the best in a
field of 30 security solutions from various manufacturers.
The AV-Test.org award is not the first time that independent experts have recognized Kaspersky
Lab’s advanced security technologies for mobile devices. Last September, two
independent testing organizations – AV-Comparatives and PC
Security Labs – gave
top award to Kaspersky Mobile Security in antivirus testing.
Ishanov, Director of the Anti-Malware Research Unit Kaspersky
Lab “Cybercriminals are paying more and more attention to Android devices;
99 percent of all mobile malware is created for this platform. We put tremendous efforts into
ensuring high security standards for the users of Kaspersky Lab’s mobile
products. However, we should also keep in mind that an antivirus solution is just
one application among many used by smartphone users. It needs to offer the
maximum levels of security while keeping a low profile in terms of CPU and
network traffic use. The results of this AV-Test.org research amply demonstrate
the effectiveness of Kaspersky Lab’s solution.”
Andreas Marx, CEO AV-Test.org “Some
products only detected 58 percent of the Android malware tested, and failed.
Kaspersky Lab, however, easily passed the AV-TEST Certification with an
excellent 99 percent protection rate.”
