Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 has received the highest prize from the independent testing laboratory Dennis Technology Labs in the Home Anti-Virus Protection comparative test of security products for home users. The test was conducted in the first quarter of 2013.
Dennis Technology Labs experts assessed how effectively solutions function based on two parameters: detecting and blocking urgent threats, and eliminating false positives where legitimate software is incorrectly blocked.
Nine internationally known products participated in the testing, but only 3 of them were awarded the highest AAA grade. Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 was in that top 3, detecting and blocking 98% of all the threats it faced and returning just one false positive.
Dennis Technology Labs does not focus solely on malware samples. Their experts also use web-sites seeded with malicious code which could infect computers. The tests were run on computers with Windows XP and Windows 7 and some popular applications, such as Adobe Flash Player, Adobe Reader, Oracle Java.
