Kaspersky Lab is pleased to announce that Kaspersky Internet Security 2014, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business and Kaspersky Small Office Security produced the best results in the latest round of Dennis Technology Labs quarterly independent testing (Oct-Dec 2013) in their respective categories.
Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 scored 1030 points out of a possible 1048, the best performance of all nine competing solutions in the test category for home products. It successfully protected the test system from 99 out of 100 malicious samples and scored the maximum 740 points in the Legitimate Software Ratings scenario that measures the rate of false positives for legitimate applications. Kaspersky Lab’s rivals averaged just 662 in the same test.
Kaspersky Small Office Security and Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business were also winners in the small business and corporate security categories respectively. In both cases Kaspersky products detected 99 threats out of 100 with no false positives. The solutions scored 1029 points from a possible 1048 – the only products to achieve such a high result.
The success of Kaspersky Lab’s products in all three categories ensured an AAA rating from Dennis Technology Labs.
“This kind of test, carried out over an extended period of time and engaging the most up-to-date malware samples, gives us the most objective insights into the protection capabilities of each product. Once again Kaspersky Lab’s industry-leading technologies proved how effectively they can combat cyber-threats – whether at home or in the office – and highlighted their versatility when working with different kinds of user environment,” said Oleg Ishanov, Anti-Malware Research Director at Kaspersky Lab.
The tests were conducted on a system running a 64-bit version of Windows 7 SP1. Security solutions for home users were checked using the Home Premium version, and corporate and small business solutions were tested using Windows Professional.
Kaspersky Lab products regularly demonstrate their effectiveness against cyber-threats in independent testing. Last December Kaspersky Internet Security beat all competitors in malware detections during testing by AV-Comparatives. And earlier in November the AV-TEST laboratory named Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business the best corporate security solution.
