Emsisoft awarded VB100 in June 2020 tests

Virus Bulletin is an information portal and independent testing and certification body headquartered in the U.K. For more than 20 years, the group has conducted the VB100, a certification test that evaluates the detection capabilities of security products.

We participated in the June 2020 tests, and we’re happy to announce that Emsisoft Anti-Malware has once again earned VB100 certification!

The tests

The VB100 tests are performed on physical computers or virtual machines with specifications similar to those you would find in a typical business environment. Security products are installed on a clean, dedicated instance of Windows, and configured with default settings. Full Internet access is allowed throughout the test.

During the test, each security product is exposed to thousands of malicious samples curated by malware experts and research groups. The security products are also exposed to a set of 100,000 clean files taken from popular software downloads available on the Internet. No malicious or clean samples are executed in the tests.

To earn VB100 certification, a security product must meet the following conditions:

The results

Emsisoft Anti-Malware flew through the tests, detecting 99.90 percent of the 2029 malicious samples while generating zero false positives, and was subsequently awarded the VB100!
