AV-TEST, a leading independent testing organization, uses one of the largest collections of digital malware samples in the world to create a real-world environment for highly accurate in-house testing. 

In July 2020, AV-Test evaluated 17 mobile security products for Android, using their default settings and the most current versions of all products. The testing focused on malware detection and (product) usability, including performance and false positives. ESET Mobile Security (EMS) achieved top scores across the full battery of tests with full 6.0/6.0 marks for Protection Score, Performance Score and Usability.  

The ESET Mobile Security app for Android was also highlighted for not impacting battery life or slowing down the device. Key features of the solution referenced in the testing include:

  •     Application Control: A feature that allows, rejects or limits access to certain apps
  •     Call Blocker: Blocks calls from specific or unknown numbers
  •     Safe Browsing: Protection against malicious websites and/or phishing
