AV-Comparatives, an independent anti-malware testing organization published its annual Summary Report 2015 that provides a market-wide overview and analysis of security products. In this year’s report, ESET was one of the five vendors awarded AV-Comparative’s Top Rated Product badge. In addition to ESET Smart Security 9 being named a Top Rated Product, it won the Silver Award in the False Positives category and the Bronze Award for Proactive Protection. The report highlights the ESET Smart Security 9 refreshed graphical user interface (GUI), as well as its “excellent and comprehensive documentation.” “ESET has been a constant part of our Summary Reports since 2006. With each new version, ESET Smart Security retains its clean trademark detection and sustains its low performance impact. With improved graphic design and finger-friendly controls, we believe that ESET products are suitable for use on touchscreens,” said Andreas Clementi, CEO at AV-Comparatives. In 2015, AV-Comparatives subjected 21 Windows security products from a range of vendors to rigorous investigation. All were tested for their ability to protect against real-world Internet threats, identify thousands of recent malicious programs, and provide protection without slowing down PCs. ESET Smart Security 9 was released in October, 2015 with improvements in protection and usability, along with new features including Banking & Payment Protection.
