3Q and 4Q of 2014 were rather successful for Kaspersky Lab: our solutions became acknowledged winners of 11 independent tests (including long-term ones).
Europe’s best selling computer magazine, German Сomputer Bild, acknowledged Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 as the best security suite 2015. The magazine also highlighted the major strengths of our solution: best antivirus and network protection, that come hand in hand with the best combination of protection performance, ease of use and resource consumption. By the way, Kaspersky Lab products have been taking the top positions in Computer Bild tests for a number of years.
Online Protection Without False Detections
During the 4-month Dynamic Test held by AV Comparatives, Kaspersky Internet Security detected 99.4% of threats and did not generate a single false positive.
This test evaluates protection from various threats (when a user tries to install a Trojan app or enter personal data on a malicious website) and the number of false positive results (when an antivirus blocks legitimate apps as if they were malware).
In the AV Comparatives’ File Detection test KIS successfully blocked 99.7% of threats. Of course, in both tests high results earned the product an Advanced+ rating.

In a similar test held by Dennis Technology Labs a number of our solutions demonstrated the highest results. All three — Kaspersky Internet Security, Kaspersky Small Office Security, and Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business — were ranked with the ААА rating and acknowledged as the most effective solutions for home users, small businesses and enterprises respectively.
Many gamers are still afraid that an antivirus can slow down system performance, though as far back as 2013 independent tests proved that this is not the case. In 2014 these results were proven once again in the AV Comparatives Performance Test. The researchers activated different scenarios on PCs with a security solution and without it. As a result, the computer with Kaspersky Internet Security installed scored 97.7 out of a possible 100 points for a computer without any security solution at all.

Protection of Mobile Devices
In the PC Security Labs test Kaspersky Internet Security for Android won the first place and successfully detected 99.75% of threats. The mobile antivirus solution also gained a certificate of quality after the results were released from a similar test held by the AV-Test Research Lab.

Windows OS Protection
According to Net Market Share researchers, Windows OS is used on 91.5% of PCs all over the world. It’s no wonder many researchers want to know how effectively different antivirus solutions work with different Windows OS versions and Service Packs.
Virus Bulletin laboratory reviewed different consumer antiviruses working on a platform running Windows 7 and products for businesses running under a 2012 Windows Server. Four Kaspersky Lab products took part in the testing: Kaspersky Endpoint Security, Kaspersky Small Office Security, Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows Servers Enterprise. All of them successfully blocked 100% of threats and did not generate a single false positive.
The @Kaspersky Lab solutions are qualified as the best according to a number of #independent #testsTweet
The results of a test conducted by AV-Test devoted to Windows XP protection ranked Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 first among 23 solutions for home users, scoring maximum points in the “Protection”, “Performance” and “Usability” categories. Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business came second among products for business: it blocked all the threats used by the testers, but slowed the operating system slightly more than the top-ranked solution.
In another AV-Test that evaluated protection of PCs with Windows 7 SP1, Kaspersky Lab experts also demonstrated high results: corporate solution Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 was awarded with the Approved Corporate Endpoint Protection certificate, and the consumer Kaspersky Internet Security solution gained the maximum number of scores and was also awarded with a certificate.
Long-Term Test: Removing Malicious Software
The most longstanding test of Kaspersky Internet Security, that lasted for about 8 month, was run by AV Comparatives. In this study, experts wanted to know how effectively different products could treat an already infected PC. As a results Kaspersky Internet Security received yet another Advanced+ certificate.
In 2014, Kaspersky Lab products took part in 93 independent tests and won first place in 51 of them. In 71% of all tests Kaspersky Lab products were among the top 3 — this is the best result among all antivirus solutions!
