AV-Comparatives annual report, titled ‘Summary Report 2016’, evaluates test results from the past year and recognizes the best IT security solutions available on the market.

“ESET has been present in our Summary Reports for the past 10 years, leading our tests with an extremely low impact on device performance, zero false positives, and all the while sustaining its detection,” said Andreas Clementi, CEO at AV-Comparatives.
As written in the report, “false positives can cause as much trouble as real infection. Due to this, it is important that antivirus products undergo stringent quality assurance and testing before release to the public, in order to avoid false positives,” continued Andreas Clementi.
“Over the past three years the wider security industry has had to accelerate its efforts to detect and neutralize threats. Now, even despite an ever higher standard for the malware detection rate, we are still able to provide our users with very light and reliable products that require only minimal maintenance or attention,” said ESET CTO, Juraj Malcho.
