Agnitum becomes one of only 5 vendors with 10+ consecutive VB100 awards
Outpost’s Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware now certified for Windows 7 Pro 32-bit
St. Petersburg, Russia — January 12, 2012. Agnitum, developer of PC security solutions since 1999, is pleased to announce that Outpost Security Suite Pro, the companyís flagship Internet security product, has received its tenth VB100 award in a row in the latest Virus Bulletin comparative review, including 100% detection of the extended in-the-wild samples collections.
Agnitumís Windows-based security products are now acknowledged to be among the most consistently effective in the industry. Every product the company has submitted to Virus Bulletin for Windows testing since January 2010 has received VB100 certification.
The latest Outpost Security Suite Pro Version 7.5 (Performance Edition) participated in the Windows 7 Professional 32-bit tests conducted by Virus Bulletin in December 2011.
In total, 55 anti-virus and security suite products from 45 vendors were tested on the regular WildList, extended WildList and clean set. Outpostís most up-to-date anti-malware engine databases in version 7.5 enabled the software to pass the tests with no false positives ó a major requirement for VB100 certification.
This time, more than 15 vendors failed the certification tests due to poor in-the-wild malware detection results and/or false positives in the clean set files, including Symantec and PCTools, Comodo, Emsisoft , Ikarus, QuickHeal, and Webroot.
Outpost was also praised by Virus Bulletin for its clean and clear interface, which provides a good basic set of controls to PC users, and for the optimized subsequent scan performance made possible by the fourth-generation SmartScan technology. Outpostís scanning speed on a repeat ("warm") scan for archives, binaries and system files, media and documents outperformed almost all competing products.
Agnitumís Internet security suite also demonstrated a lighter memory usage (in the busy state) than Eset Nod32 Antivirus, eScan Internet Security, Fortinet Forticlient, Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8, QuickHeal Total Security 2012, Trustport Antivirus 2012, and all Symantec and PC Tools products that participated in this particular test.
Founded in 1999, Agnitum Ltd. (www.agnitum.com) is a leading developer of high-quality, easy-to-use security software. Agnitumís solutions include Outpost Firewall Pro and Outpost Antivirus Pro for securing personal and family desktops; and Outpost Security Suite ó an all-in-one Internet security solution.
