Kaspersky Lab’s flagship product for home users, Kaspersky Internet Security 2014, blocked 100% of Internet attacks during the independent Whole Product Dynamic Real-World Protection Test carried out by respected research laboratory AV-Comparatives.
The Whole Product Dynamic Real-World Protection Test is a regular monthly challenge. For the August edition AV-Comparatives selected 443 malicious samples, including exploits, which might easily be found on infected sites or in malicious email attachments. According to the organizers, the selected samples represent the most commonplace ways of infecting user computers.
During testing Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 successfully neutralized 100% of the threats it encountered. It was a result only two other products from the more than 20 leading protection solutions could match.
Testing was conducted on a Windows 7 64-bit SP1 operating system with current versions of popular software such as Adobe Flash and Oracle Java. Each security application was run on a dedicated computer.
“The results of the AV-Comparatives test confirm that Kaspersky Internet Security provides unrivalled protection against common Internet threats that users are likely to encounter. In particular, the product includes Automatic Exploit Prevention, a new active protection technology that once again produced an excellent performance, blocking every attempt to exploit software vulnerabilities,” said Oleg Ishanov, Director Anti-Malware Research, Kaspersky Lab.
Kaspersky Internet Security regularly achieves high scores in AV-Comparatives testing. For example, in 2012 the test organization named Kaspersky Internet Security one of the best computer protection products.
Kaspersky Internet Security provides comprehensive protection against Internet threats, including phishing, spam, and exploits, and includes parental control functionality. The updated Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 was released at the end of August.
