ESET Secures Fourth Consecutive "Advanced+" Award in Performance Test from AV-Comparatives
ESET today announced that it has secured its fourth "Advanced+" award in performance testing from AV-Comparatives, an independent research organization. The latest test measured the impact on system performance of 20 antivirus products. In addition to receiving the highest possible number of "Advanced+" awards in performance testing, ESET has received more "Advanced+" awards in retrospective tests than any other vendor, which is given to products that have excellent heuristic detection rates and low false positives.
AV-Comparatives provides a three-level ranking system of "Standard," "Advanced" and "Advanced+" awards. To receive an "Advanced+" award, products in this particular test were compared based on how much impact the product has on a system. ESET tops the list as the product with the least amount of system impact.
"Over the years and throughout different tests, we've seen that ESET develops high-performing security solutions that have a small impact on system performance. Receiving once again the 'Advanced+' award in our most recent performance test is further validation." said Andreas Clementi, founder and chairman for AV-Comparatives. "Additionally, ESET has always understood the importance of strong heuristics in fighting malware and continues to be the vendor with the most amount of 'Advanced+' awards in AV-Comparatives heuristic detection tests."
