ESET holds the record number of the highest Advanced+ awards in proactive detection by AV-Comparatives. No other vendor was able to match this achievement to date.

Proactive detection refers to the way ESET security solutions detect malicious programs that have not yet been discovered and catalogued. The scanning engine is trained to detect malware without relying on the updates of the antivirus signatures, i.e. catching malware by its intrinsic "malicious" behavior.
