ESET NOD32 Antivirus holds the world record of VB100 Awards of all security solution vendors.


Virus Bulletin praised ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 in its official evaluation and comments: “Still maintaining an epic streak of passes.

Operation was smooth and stable throughout testing, with no surprises or issues to report.”


“We are proud that the ESET NOD32 antivirus technology has earned more consecutive Virus Bulletin VB100 awards than any other antivirus solution.
