A survey by AV-Comparatives has made it official: ESET is one of the top security providers in the world.

In this recent survey of computer users worldwide, ESET was recognized as one of the top two most popular desktop security products.

ESET also earned a spot on the top four mobile security solutions used worldwide in the survey of more than 2,500 users.

This is the sixth year that AV-Comparatives, an independent testing lab, has conducted the survey. Other highlights:

  • A majority of users (86 percent) indicated they were well protected over the past six months, having not suffered a malware infection in this period.
  • Over one third (35 percent) stated that their security product had blocked malware within the last week, indicating how easy it is to encounter a threat.

It’s clear that survey respondents value independent tests very highly when it comes to choosing security software: 75 percent said they use the results of these tests to select their internet security solution.

Here at ESET, we’re proud of our ongoing participation in testing and evaluation—because our results and awards speak for themselves.
