ESET, the global pioneer in proactive digital protection, has claimed first place among 16 security products tested in the latest AV-Comparatives Anti-Phishing Report, thus securing the “Advanced+” mark. ESET Smart Security has blocked 99 percent of the phishing websites and did not record any false positive alarm.
“In the test scenario, AV-Comparatives simulates the common situation where users rely on the anti-phishing protection provided by their security products while browsing the web,” states the report. AV/Comparatives continues: ”The phishing campaigns targeted various types of personal data, including login credentials for PayPal, online banking & credit cards, e-mail accounts, eBay, social networks, online games and other online services”.
