K7 Computing, one of the world’s leading data security and threat management companies, announced today that that its flagship product K7 Total Security has received the VB100 award on Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 systems from The Virus Bulletin.
The Virus Bulletin, a leader in testing and certifying anti-malware applications and organizations, is highly regarded in the anti-malware industry. It only awards the right to display the VB100 logo to anti-malware products that can detect all “In-the-wild” malware during both on-demand and on-access scanning, and generate no false positives when scanning a set of known clean files using just the application’s default settings.
The Virus Bulletin testing team noted that, “Under the covers, a good level of configuration options is provided. Stability was once again flawless, with no problems noted. Scanning speeds were pretty good, overheads not bad at first and barely perceptible in the warm runs.”
This award for anti-malware excellence on Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 systems joins the VB100 awards K7 products had already earned since 2007 for Microsoft Windows 7, XP operating systems, and for Windows 2008 Server.
Jayaraman Kesavardhanan, CEO of K7 Computing, commented, “We believe that protecting our customers from cyber threats is our sole mission. We are driven by the belief that everyone in the world should be able to use the Internet safely, and without fear that criminals will steal their money or identity. That we did so well on The Virus Bulletin’s very strict certification tests shows again that K7’s engineering teams and specialists have built remarkable cyber protection products that anyone can rely on.”

The product steps ahead of traditional security software by combining malware protection, active web filtering, runtime behavior monitoring, intrusion protection, smart firewall and parental controls into an easily managed system.
