ESET Internet Security ranked first place in AV Comparatives’ Performance Test – Impact of Consumer Security Software on System Performance report. ESET scored 99.7 out of a possible 100 points; from 98.5 score in the 2018 report. ESET’s flagship consumer product received the rating “Very fast” in all test cases, including: Files Copying, Archives Manipulation, Application Installation, Launch, Websites Browsing and Content Download. AV Comparatives is a world-renowned independent testing and certification body.
ESET has been awarded first place out of 16 vendors in the industry-standard test that evaluates the impact of antivirus software on system performance, as programs such as real-time protection antivirus software use a percentage of system resources while running in the background.
Virus Bulletin also awarded ESET Internet Security with the VB100 certification in its VB 100 Certification Report April 2019. ESET was rated 100%, resulting in another VB100 certification and its 119th Virus Bulletin award. The certification is awarded to software that satisfies a minimum standard of detecting malware, while blocking few to no legitimate programs.
“ESET’s recognition as a leader in consumer protection is testament to our dedication in providing both consumers and businesses with the absolute best in IT security. As malware advances and becomes an increasingly pertinent threat to users and their personal data, we are proud to provide a reliable solution that keeps consumers around the world safe and protected,” said Jiří Kropáč, head of threat detection at ESET.
