Recent News - Recent Global Testing Shows Customers Can Be 100% Protected Against Malware with ESET


ESET has broken an industry record with the number of awards earned, following a series of stringent industry tests by SE Labs, the world’s leading independent information technology security testing organization. In the latest series of SE Labs Anti-Malware Protection tests, ESET reaped not one, but three of the highest accolades - AAA Awards - by delivering 100% protection accuracy in tests for enterprise, small business endpoint and consumer. This is the first time ESET has received three simulataneously AAA Awards since SE Labs’ founding in 2016, and confirms its strongest features - zero false positives, low impact on system performance and 100% proactive protection. 

"ESET's products have not only performed extremely well in this set of tests, but over the whole of 2016 the protection observed has been of an extremely high quality. At SE Labs we value consistency as well as sound results. This is a difficult test to pass, but the ESET products demonstrated superior quality and trademark protecion," said SE Labs founder and Director, Simon Edwards.

In SE Labs’ Enterprise Anti-Malware Protection test and Small Business Endpoint Anti-Malware Protection test, ESET Endpoint Security achieved the best results due to a combination of its ability to block malicious URLs, handle exploits and correctly classify legitimate applications and websites. The testers also confirmed another of ESET Endpoint Security’s strengths – the effective handling of targeted, exploit-based attacks, thus protecting businesses of all sizes against a variety of threats including the infamous BlackEnergy and Sednit groups.

In the Home Anti-Malware Protection test, the ESET home user product surpassed other anti-malware vendors and was the only product to deliver 100% protection accuracy. This means that consumers who install ESET products on their  devices can rest assured that they will be protected against the most prevalent threats such as ransomware, banking malware and spyware. 

“Now, more than ever before, protection is not only about blocking malicious URLs and having zero false positives, it is about the ability to handle more complicated, targeted attacks and being able to provide users with proactive protection without having an impact on their system. The SE Labs tests demonstrate these new, modern scenarios well and prove ESET products are functioning with 100% accuracy, for 100% peace of mind,” said Juraj Malcho, Chief Technology Officer at ESET.
