CheckLab is a new security software testing organization founded by the well-known company AVLab. In July 2019, CheckLab ran the first edition of its “Advanced in the Wild Malware Test,” and we’re happy to announce that Emsisoft Business Security was awarded the Best+++ badge!
How does CheckLab perform the tests?
Malware is a significant threat to modern businesses. Failure to detect and stop a threat can potentially result in costly downtime, recovery and reputation loss. The Advanced in the Wild Malware Test can help business owners and IT professionals make a more informed choice in regards to their choice of security software.
The test involved evaluating the protection capabilities of eight business-grade security solutions. To perform the test, each security product was installed on a system running Windows 10 Pro x64 with user account control disabled. A number of typical business applications were also installed on the system, including an office suite, email client, document browser and a few other tools.
The security products were then exposed to almost 1,000 carefully vetted malware samples, and were awarded one of three badges depending on how well the protected the system:
- Best+++: at least 99% detection
- Best++: at least 95% detection
- Good+: at least 90% detection
We’re delighted to report that Emsisoft Business Security excelled in the tough test conditions and successfully blocked 100 percent of the malware samples. As a result, Emsisoft Business Security was awarded the Best+++ badge!
