Based in Magdeburg, Germany, independent security testing lab AV-Test runs a wide variety of ongoing tests to identify which antivirus products do the best job. Among other things, AV-Test researchers measure how well each product defends against attack by malicious software, evaluate how much of an impact it has on system performance, and analyze components that contribute to good usability. In between their regular reports, they stepped back to consider which product has the most innovative technology. Kaspersky Lab earned this honor, receiving the AV-Test Innovation Award for 2013.
Every security product must block malware attacks and, if necessary, root out malware that's already taken up residence; that's the baseline. Kaspersky was honored specifically for going beyond the basics with the secure online transaction technology found in Kaspersky Internet Security (2014) and other Kaspersky products.
In a press release announcing the award, AV-Test lauds Kaspersky's secure browser, which kicks in automatically for known financial sites and other sensitive sites. The secure browser "precisely examines all websites, blocks phishing websites and protects the browser from being accessed by other programs on the PC." It blocks keylogging and screen scraping, keeping all external programs from accessing browser data. AV-Test also praised the vulnerability scanner built into Kaspersky products, noting that the PC "can only be sealed off from malware and hackers when all updates have been installed." Read more.
