Detects 100 Percent of “In-the-Wild” viruses; Generates Zero False Positives

SAN DIEGO – December 4, 2007 – ESET, the leader in proactive threat protection, today announced that its ESET NOD32 Antivirus product has captured an industry-leading 47th VB100 award from Virus Bulletin performs independent comparative testing of antivirus products and is widely respected within the antivirus community.

Virus Bulletin introduced its first VB100 award in 1998. In order to display the VB100 logo, an antivirus product must meet two criteria. (1) Demonstrate it detects all “In-the-Wild” viruses during both on-demand and on-access scanning. (2) Generate no false positives when scanning a set of clean files. 

“Installing and using the product has never been too difficult, and as usual testing sped through in remarkable time, with the usual excellent results,” wrote John Hawes of Virus Bulletin. “With the WildList fully covered and no false positives, ESET adds yet another VB100 Award to its groaning trophy cabinet.”

“With over nine years of consistent and unprecedented virus detection, we’re clearly committed to delivering the service and technology our customers deserve, said Anton Zajac, CEO of ESET, LLC.  

ESET NOD32 Antivirus is powered by ThreatSense® technology, an advanced heuristics engine that enables proactive detection of malware not covered by even the most frequently updated signature-based products. Unlike traditional solutions, ESET NOD32 Antivirus decodes and analyzes executable code in real-time, using an emulated environment. By allowing malware to execute in a secure virtual world, ESET is able to clearly differentiate between benign files and even the most sophisticated and cleverly-disguised malware.

Since the inception of VB100 awards in 1998, ESET NOD32 Antivirus boasts a success rate of 95.92% - the industry’s highest.  Most antivirus vendors have success ratios in the 50 – 75 percent range.
