Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows Shows Best Results in Dennis Technology Labs Q2 Enterprise Anti-Virus Test

Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows has demonstrated the best performance and earned the top AAA grade in a test of business security products conducted by Dennis Technology Labs in Q2 2014.

DENNIS AAA Technology Labs Dennis Technology Labs’ testing  methodology involves separate tests to  review the quality of the protection  provided, and to assess how good the  participating products are at identifying  non- hazardous objects. The first  Protection Rating index reflects the  product’s effectiveness in countering  contemporary threats. It is determined  as follows: a computer running the   participating product is bombarded with 100 recent active threats  detected by Dennis Technology Labs’ specialized malicious site detection system; all of these threats are deployed no more than 3-4 hours after they are proven malicious. If the security solution is capable of detecting the launch of malicious code, neutralizing its actions and removing all the consequences of its operation from the system, it is given one, two or three points respectively. If the solution proves unable to counter the threat, it loses 5 points. Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows successfully protected against 99% of the threats and earned 292 points – the highest score of any competing product in the Protection Rating test.

The Legitimate Software Rating index assesses how the security solution classifies objects known to be non-hazardous: as secure, unknown, unclassifiable, suspicious, unwanted or malicious, as well as the actions the products takes or recommends the user to take. The highest score is given to the product which allows legitimate software to be installed without asking for any human involvement. The less accurate the solution, the more human involvement is required; the better known the program being checked, the greater the penalty for misidentifying it. Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows successfully identified all the legitimate programs and did not interfere with their installation, earning 858 points.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows earned a total of 1150 points, becoming the undisputed champion in this test and receiving the AAA certificate.

“In today’s business, the continuity of workflow processes is crucial to success. To ensure that continuity, effective counter-measures against malware as well as unimpeded operation of legitimate applications are required,” said Oleg Ishanov, Director of the Anti-Malware Research Unit at Kaspersky Lab. “As this testing has demonstrated, Kaspersky Lab’s technologies are highly capable at both of these tasks.”

Also, Kaspersky Lab’s security products once again excelled in Dennis Technology Labs’ Q2 tests for Home Anti-Virus Protection and Small Business Anti-Virus Protection, earning the AAA grade in both tests.
