TrustPort Antivirus has shown a truly superb score and reached a twofold success in comparative tests
TrustPort, a leading global provider of security software, announced today that following rigorous tests conducted by two major independent laboratories - VB100 and AV-Comparatives - its products have been rightly acclaimed as featuring the best antivirus technology in the industry.
The test set utilised by AV-Comparatives contained about 400,000 malware samples not older than six months. TrustPort Antivirus attained the top position in the test by detecting 99.2% of the samples, an outcome unrivalled by any of the competing products. The product has thus gained yet another AV-Comparatives Advanced+ award.
There were almost seventy vendors listed in the April comparative testing by Virus Bulletin. Their products were subject to a range of tests, focused on scanning both on-demand and on-access, evaluating reactive and proactive detection techniques, taking into account performance criteria as well. TrustPort Antivirus won the first place with the success rate of 98% and with 0% of false alarms.
“TrustPort is one of the handful of multi-engine products that routinely vies for the highest set of scores in our tests, marking out the top right corner of our reactive and proactive quadrant as its own,” noted John Hawes, Technical Consultant at Virus Bulletin. “The company’s recent test record is excellent, with nine passes in the last dozen tests, the other three not entered; the last year shows four passes from four entries.”
Virus Bulletin report by John Hawes described the qualities of TrustPort Antivirus in detail: “The set-up process is fairly speedy, with no deviations from standard practice, and all is done in a minute or so with no need to restart.” It went on by appreciating the excellent detection rates, which “barely dropped below 99% in most areas, with even the proactive week of the reactive and proactive sets showing a truly superb score. The WildList was brushed aside, and perhaps most importantly the clean set was handled admirably.”
