Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Windows, Kaspersky Lab’s recently unveiled corporate security solution, received the highest marks in its first independent testing, conducted by IT security institute AV-Test.org. The “business product full testing” was conducted in July and August of 2011, during which the beta version of Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Windows was evaluated along with six other vendors’ endpoint security products. All products were “approved”, but Kaspersky’s solution outscored the competition on points, due to its performance on detection and removal of malicious software, in addition to overall usability.

“We are pleased that the first independent testing revealed the full potential of our new corporate solution, which earned top marks for detection and removal of malicious objects, as well as performance and usability, with zero false positive detections of legitimate software,” says Nikita Shvetsov, Director of Anti-Malware Research, Kaspersky Lab. Specific achievements in the testing of the solution include a 100 percent result in “real-world” testing, in which the level of protection against zero-day malware attacks and web and e-mail threats was evaluated. In the static testing the solution detected 99 percent of more than 230,000 malware samples. Another 100 percent result was achieved in detection of widespread malware (of which 5000 samples were used). High effectiveness was also shown in the removal of malicious software, in which 95 percent of actively running malicious programs were detected and 85 percent of them removed.

As a result of this performance, the solution received the highest score of 16 out of 18 points - much higher than the average result (12.8 points).
