Kaspersky Lab, company that offers award-winning antivirus and mobile security software for home and corporate users, was glad to announce that several of its products won the prestigious VB100 accolade from Virus Bulletin, the independent British magazine that focuses on the prevention, detection and removal of malware and spam. The products that got a VB100 award are Kaspersky Internet Security 2011, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Windows Workstations and Kaspersky PURE.

Virus Bulletin put a grand total of 69 antivirus products to the test, some of the most popular products on the market. For a period of 5 weeks, Virus Bulletin tested their malware detection capabilities on Windows XP SP3-powered machines. Kaspersky Internet Security 2011, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Windows Workstations and Kaspersky PURE properly protected against malware on XP SP3.

It must be mentioned here that this is the first independent test in which Kaspersky PURE demonstrated it has proper malware protection capabilities. According to figures from Virus Bulletin’s tests, 100% of viruses from the WildList collection and polymorphic viruses were neutralized when running on-demand scans and in real-time protection modes. Also according to figures from Virus Bulletin’s tests, Kaspersky PURE got a 94.5% score in Reactive and Proactive (RAP) detection tests.

The Virus Bulletin tests also revealed that Kaspersky PURE did not produce a single false positive, performed excellently against archived malware of all types and scanned everything at a rapid pace. Virus Bulletin highlighted the fact that Kaspersky PURE has a user-friendly, intuitive interface.

This is not the first award that Kaspersky PURE won; I know at least two others. Back in January Kaspersky PURE was named “Product of the Year” by CHIP Romania. Then in February PC Plus, the UK's premier technology magazine, has given Kaspersky PURE the much coveted performance award.

If you are not familiar with Kaspersky PURE and you don’t know what it has to offer, here’s the lowdown:
  • Protects against viruses, malware, spyware, spam, and other security threats.
  • Its security tools can erase data trails, so hackers can’t follow you online. The file shredder will ensure data is securely disposed of.
  • Advanced backup tools and encryption technology ensures you can protect your precious photos, videos, documents and music from being lost.
  • Anti-phishing, secure passwords management, virtual keyboard, and all the other bits and pieces you need to protect your digital identity.
  • Manage who can use the computer, what applications can be accessed, monitor what sites are accessed.
  • Monitor and limit what children do on social networking sites.
  • Home Network Control allows you to check your network security status, download updates and start scans and backups from anywhere on your home network.
  • Works with Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.
