OF­FICE SE­CU­RITY LEADER

Kasper­sky Small Of­fice Se­cu­rity Crowned Best Small Busi­ness Se­cu­rity Solution by AV-TEST

HWM (Malaysia) - - SMB - REPORT -

Kasper­sky Lab was awarded the max­i­mum of 18 points over­all in the AV-TEST. The test ex­am­ined 11 dif­fer­ent Win­dows 10-com­pat­i­ble cor­po­rate so­lu­tions in three cat­e­gories: protection, speed, and us­abil­ity – and Kasper­sky Small Of­fice Se­cu­rity re­ceived full marks in all three cat­e­gories.

The AV-TEST bench­mark was done in two stages. First, each cor­po­rate solution was tested against 0-day mal­ware at­tacks, in­clud­ing web and e-mail threats. Next, each cor­po­rate solution’s abil­ity to de­tect re­cent wide­spread and preva­lent mal­ware is tested. To as­sess the per­for­mance of se­cu­rity so­lu­tions un­der Win­dows 10, the testers mim­icked typ­i­cal user be­hav­ior by launch­ing pop­u­lar web­sites, down­load­ing and in­stalling fre­quently used ap­pli­ca­tions, and copy­ing of files both lo­cally and in a net­work.

In the first test, 140 sam­ples of 0-day mal­ware and 14,658 wide­spread sam­ples were used. In this test, Kasper­sky Lab’s solution achieved 98.75 and 99.95 per­cent de­tec­tion re­sults, re­spec­tively.

“This is not the first time Kasper­sky Lab’s cor­po­rate so­lu­tions have fin­ished as a leader in in­de­pen­dent test­ing by AV-TEST. The cur­rent test showed Kasper­sky Small Of­fice Se­cu­rity as one of the best se­cu­rity so­lu­tions on the mar­ket, co­op­er­at­ing per­fectly with Win­dows 10. Even when the solution is in­stalled us­ing stan­dard set­tings, it can sat­isfy the most de­mand­ing cus­tomer se­cu­rity re­quire­ments,” said Maik Mor­gen­stern, Chief Tech­nol­ogy Of­fi­cer, AV-TEST.

“In this age of ris­ing cy­ber­crime, Kasper­sky Lab is strongly fo­cused on de­liv­er­ing best of breed se­cu­rity so­lu­tions that have min­i­mum im­pact on user pro­duc­tiv­ity. We un­der­stand that ran­somware, spy­ware and bank­ing Tro­jans can not only par­a­lyze busi­nesses but also dam­age rep­u­ta­tions. Kasper­sky Lab de­liv­ers a truly mul­ti­lay­ered protection, which pre­vents at­tacks at all stages: from mul­ti­ple vec­tors of in­fec­tion mon­i­tor­ing and pre­ven­tion to post-ex­e­cu­tion ap­pli­ca­tions be­hav­ior con­trol. Se­cu­rity is al­ways a trade-off with us­abil­ity, and we are proud to be rec­og­nized as the best se­cu­rity solution, as well as the solution that has min­i­mum im­pact on pro­duc­tiv­ity, iden­ti­fies the min­i­mum level of false pos­i­tives and max­i­mizes the au­to­matic mit­i­ga­tion and pre­ven­tion of at­tacks,” added Kon­stantin Voronkov, Head of End­point Prod­uct Man­age­ment, Kasper­sky Lab.
