You buy your antivirus software to protect your computers/data but how effective is it?
Do you turn it off because it slows you down?
is an independent testing organization with full time professional, independent antivirus experts. VB is widely recognized within the antivirus industry for their rigorous comparative tests focusing on virus detection rates, scanning speed, and generation of false positives. To earn a Virus Bulletin Award (VB100), an antivirus product must detect all of the current “In the Wild” viruses and not produce any false positives.
NOD32 is the only solution worldwide that has never missed a single “In the Wild” worm or virus in this testing since May 1998 and holds the world record of VB100 Awards, obtaining the 50th Award in June 2008.
Symantec is second in the Virus Bulletin test history although in the same tests NOD32 has been consistently faster, with much smaller system footprint and far less system resources usage. Symantec also failed 3 Virus Bulletin tests prior to NOD32 making its debut. That brings their overall success ratio down to 88%. (June 2008; www.virusbtn.com)
