ESET Smart Security earned a highest award from SE Labs in its latest Home Anti-Malware Protection test - AAA Award, reaching the best results with the ultimate protection score – 100%. The test evaluated nine leading consumer security solutions in protection accuracy, legitimate accuracy and total accuracy. According to the report, ESET Smart Security 9 stands out as the only one product that blocked every threat.
“ESET home user products protected against all of the public web-based threats and targeted attacks. It blocked 100% of the threats. This software was also entirely effective when handling legitimate objects, giving it the rare privilege of a 100% overall rating." explains Simon Edwards, SE Labs' founder and Director.
