Brno, August 17, 2010 – TrustPort, a leader in Internet security, announced today that it has been recognised as having the highest reactive and proactive (RAP) detection scores in the latest tests conducted by Virus Bulletin.
“TrustPort detection rates, as usual, were almost unfailingly splendid, with very little missed anywhere, and with no false alarms to counterbalance the excellent scores. The WildList was swept mercilessly aside, and TrustPort storms its way to another VB100 award,” stated John Hawes, Technical Consultant at Virus Bulletin, in his latest comparative review from August, 2010 (http://www.virusbtn.com/vb100/rap-index.xml).
“We are delighted with these results as they further substantiate the strength of our technology and the superior features of the products that we offer. Our dual engine approach has been enhanced, producing excellent speed-up and impressive low resource usage as was observed by Virus Bulletin”, commented Vladislav Němec, Chief Executive Officer of TrustPort.
About the RAP test
The RAP sets were put together from significant items gathered in the three weeks leading up to the 24 July product deadline and the week following, and the trojans and worms & bots sets bulked up with new items received in the month or so between RAP sets. With further expansion of the sample-gathering efforts, the initial numbers were fairly high, but every effort was made to classify and validate as much as possible prior to the start of testing, to keep scan times to a minimum. Further validation continued during testing and items not meeting requirements were struck from the sets; in the end, the weekly RAP sets contained around 10,000 samples per week, with just over 70,000 in the trojans set and 15,000 in the worms and bots set. The polymorphic set remained largely the same as in previous tests.
