Dubai - MENA Herald: ESET®, the global pioneer of proactive security software and protection products, announced that its products are undisputed with highest rate in spam protection. Two leading independent testing authorities, Virus Bulletin and AV-Comparatives, recently published their tests of anti-spam protection. The highest-rated security solutions in both tests were ESET products. ESET Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange Server was tested in the latest VBSpam Test, ESET Smart Security in AV-Comparatives Anti-Spam Test.
“Our clients’ safety has always been the core pillar on which ESET was built and these impartial test results reflect our ongoing efforts to continually invest and develop innovate new products. With spam email content - especially increasingly accurate and accomplished grammatical and spelling elements – now far more advanced than ever before, many servers interpret the incoming mail as legitimate. These test results demonstrate the sophistication, flexibility, performance and reliability of ESET products to interpet and decipher real mail from spam,“ said Neo Neophytou, Managing Director, ESET Middle East.
Virus Bulletin tested 18 full business email security solutions. ESET Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange Server reached a spam catch rate of 99.999% on the 177 thousand spam emails and recorded the third consecutive VBSpam+ Award for ESET.
AV-Comparatives tested 12 leading consumer security solutions, as suggested by the German computer magazine PC Magazin, using native antispam capabilities of Microsoft Outlook as a benchmark. On a set of nearly 130 thousand spam emails ESET Smart Security reached the highest spam catch rate of 99,96% and won the first place in the Anti-Spam Test. “We found the integration of ESET Smart Security into Outlook to be very simple but effective, allowing for the easy marking of mails or addresses as spam. The program blocked 99.96% of unwanted messages in our spam filtering test, the highest score of any product tested,” reads the AV-Comparatives’ report.
