October 2009

Top certification from AV-Comparatives awarded to the antivirus software with high detection rates and the lowest false positives rating

BitDefenderannounced today that BitDefender Antivirus 2010 received the top certification level from AV-Comparatives for its high detection rates and the lowest false positive rating.

AV-Comparatives August 2009 test was performed on 16 antivirus products to determine which software had the highest detection rates and lowest false positives. AV-Comparatives used a 4-level ranking system: Tested, Standard, Advanced, and Advanced+. The test introduced a set containing both clean and malicious samples that are first run with the softwares default settings, then under the most paranoid settings.

We are particularly pleased with AV-Comparatives Advanced+ Certification for BitDefender Antivirus 2010 because this further solidifies that in addition to providing solutions offering the highest level of protection, BitDefender also provides antivirus software that out performs all other test subjects in false positive ratings with the lowest number of occurrences, said Viorel Canja, BitDefenders head of antimalware lab.
