Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 Achieves Top Results In AV-Comparatives Tests

By | June 13, 2006

Kaspersky® Anti-Virus 6.0, Kaspersky Lab’s latest anti-virus software that protects PCs against all malicious programs, is given a high rating in tests by AV-Comparatives, an independent Austrian anti-virus test lab.

The tests analysed the reliability and effectiveness of the proactive protection module in Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0, and were conducted using an in-house collection of 6,329 samples, including 3,175 backdoors, 2,720 other Trojans, 294 email worms, 124 script viruses and 16 other viruses. Notably, only the proactive defense module of Kaspersky Anti-Virus was enabled during testing.

Kaspersky Lab’s latest personal products, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 and Kaspersky Internet Security 6.0, combine award-winning reactive technologies from previous product versions with newly developed proactive technologies.

The Kaspersky Lab proactive protection module detected 99% of the AV-Comparatives collection, clearly demonstrating that Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 provides exceptionally effective protection from new, unknown threats.

“Different kinds of antivirus tests we conduct are designed to clarify the pros and cons of different antivirus products, and also to determine the level of each product’s quality,” says Andreas Clementi, project manager of AV-Comparatives test laboratory. “The sixth version of Kaspersky Anti-Virus did its best in its separate proactive defense module test, detecting most of the malware we executed, showing the excellent developers’ work and high quality of the product.”

Kaspersky Lab’s signature-based (reactive) technologies also demonstrated impressive detection results in previous tests conducted in February 2006 (http://www.av-comparatives.org/seiten/ergebnisse_2006_02.php).
