All attacks on users’ computers were successfully blocked by Kaspersky Interenet Security 2013 in the independent test conducted by respected Austrian lab, AV-Comparatives. The test with the self-explanatory name “Real-World Protection Test” was performed in March 2013 and proved that Kaspersky Lab’s solution provides the highest level of protection.
The methodology of the Real-World Protection Test is quite straightforward. Experts use a computer with newly-installed Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64bit and apply all recent security patches. The same goes for essential external modules like Adobe Reader, Flash and Java.
Then experts imitate users’ actions such as visiting infected websites with drive-by exploits and downloading malicious applications directly or from webmail attachments. AV-Comparatives’ experts managed to find 422 malicious objects able to infect the system despite the installed updates. Each malware was checked with a system protected by antivirus – the test included 20 leading protection solutions.
Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 prevented 100% of the attacks, once again proving the expertise of the Kaspersky developers and malware analysts. Our users are well-protected! And more importantly, the protection level is constantly high. Kaspersky Internet Security earned the highest mark, Advanced+, in similar tests conducted in July and December 2012.
