Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content and threat management solutions, announces that Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 has produced excellent results in tests carried out by the authoritative research center AV-Test.org.

In February 2011, the independent IT test organization AV-Test.org conducted a comprehensive test of 26 of the most popular antivirus solutions. All the solutions were subjected to ‘Real World’ testing that involved blocking infection attempts from malicious websites, as well as dynamic testing – detecting malware by analyzing its behavior as it launches. Additionally, the performance of each solution was tested, including its ability to unpack archives and to avoid false positives. All of the solutions tested were installed on computers running Microsoft Windows 7 32-bit.

Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 demonstrated excellent results, neutralizing 100% of the ‘Real World’ threats and detecting all of the threats in the dynamic and WildList categories. The Kaspersky Lab product was the only solution to detect, block and remove all of the dynamic threats in the test. Kaspersky Lab’s solution was also highly commended for its exceptional performance and success in unpacking all types of archives.

“We are especially delighted that our solutions have continued to demonstrate the highest levels of protection in the ‘Real World’ and Dynamic Malware Detection tests, which simulate everyday situations on users’ computers. Tests such as these are the most objective way to evaluate the capabilities of antivirus solutions. During the test, Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 neutralized all of the most recent threats, such as malicious scripts from infected web pages and new malware,” said Nikita Shvetsov, Head of Kaspersky Lab’s Anti-Malware Research Unit.
