Anti-Malware Test Lab, a well-known and respected IT security research and information web portal, put Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 to the test and found that it offers a properly good level of self-protection. Consequently Anti-Malware Test Lab gave Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 a Platinum Self-Protection Award, Anti-Malware Test Lab's highest accolade.

To put things in perspective, the web portal put a grand total of 20 security software solutions to the test – the most popular antivirus products out there. Kaspersky’s successfully protected the Windows XP SP3 and Windows 7 operating systems it was installed on, passing all of Anti-Malware Test Lab’s and scoring 100 out of 100 points.


Anti-Malware Test Lab tested Kaspersky’s self-protection capabilities; the web portal used utilities designed to imitate various attacks such as modifying or deleting file and registry key access permissions, modifying or removing modules/processes/code, deleting antivirus databases, deleting registry keys, modifying/unloading drivers, and terminating processes.

“Attacks that target the operating system running on a computer is a common technique cybercriminals use to access the victim's valuable information and resources”, explained Head of Marketing for Kaspersky Lab's Consumer Business Division, Dmitry Ustyuzhanin. “In view of this, in the early stages of development we paid a great deal of attention to the product's ability to protect itself against malicious code. We appreciate that our efforts and expertise have been held in such high regard by Anti-Malware Test Lab. The Platinum Self-Protection Award received by Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 provides recognition of the high level of our solutions' self-protection capabilities, and consequently, the reliability of the protection we provide to our users.”
