Virus Bulletin is a highly reputable testing organization in the industry whose goal is to measure the detection effectiveness and quality of antivirus products. The organization has given Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of Kaspersky Lab, the VB2010 Lifetime Achievement Award to honor his work in the antimalware industry. Just to put things in perspective, Eugene Kaspersky has more than 20 years of experience under his belt; he co-founded Kaspersky Lab in 1997, and was appointed CEO in 2007.

As a little side note, it must be said that Kaspersky Internet Security 2011got a Platinum Self-Protection Award from Anti-Malware Test Lab, a well-known and respected IT security research and information web portal. It must also be mentioned that at the e-brand Awards 2010 in Hong Kong (hosted by e-zone magazine, one of the top IT media publications in Hong Kong), KAV 2011 received the Best Antivirus Software award.


Getting back to Virus Bulleting, the organization gave a VB100 award to Sophos, company that specializes in providing antivirus, anti-spam, spyware removal software, network and internet security, data protection, and computer security solutions. Virus Bulletin put a grand total of 38 security products to the test; the goal was to see if the product could viruses on the Windows Server 2003 platform. Sophos Endpoint Security and Control 9.5 properly protected the OS and consequently received a VB100 award.

“Virus Bulletin tested 38 products from different vendors, examining their ability to detect 100% of the in-the-wild viruses without false alarming. Sophos Endpoint Security and Control 9.5 performed well, and was given the prestigious VB100 award for detecting all the in-the-wild viruses - in both on-demand and on-access modes - without false alarming. Virus Bulletin's experienced testing team also found that Sophos achieved a perfect 100% score against polymorphic malware. Sophos outperformed a number of other products which failed to pass the tests,” explained Senior Technology Consultant with Sophos, Graham Cluley.
