Happy Valley, South Australia, Australia, 2009/06/13 - In the June Virus Bulletin comparative review, TrustPort Antivirus once again ranked amongst the best security solutions globally.
As usual, the product excelled thanks to its high detection in on-access protection, and also in on-demand scanning. A total of twenty two manufactures took part in the comparative review with their antivirus products.
The comparison consisted of several tests. TrustPort Antivirus on-access protection managed to reveal 100% in-the-wild viruses and 100% worms. Excellent results were also achieved in the detection of polymorphic viruses (98,82%) and Trojans (88.19%). During on-demand scanning, TrustPort Antivirus detected 100% of current viruses, and 100% of worms.
During the test, TrustPort Antivirus did not report any false positives, and therefore rightfully earned the VB100 award. As part of the comparative review, there was also a proactive test. This is a heuristic test of the ability of antivirus products to detect yet unknown viruses. TrustPort Antivirus detected 80.7% of new viruses, and in this respect became the third best solution in the world.
TrustPort antivirus technology recognized and awarded by Virus Bulletin is also the basis of portable solutions TrustPort USB Antivirus and TrustPort U3 Antivirus, designed for the protection of portable storage media. It is also included in the comprehensive security solution TrustPort PC Security, and server solution TrustPort Net Gateway, designed for the protection of computer networks.
