ESET hits 100 consecutive VB100 home runs

By

ESET's NOD32 is the only anti-malware solution worldwide, that, since 1998, has never missed a single “in-the-wild” worm or virus in independent VB100 testing.

It is the first product to pass the threshold of 100 VB100 Awards received by a single product.

Virus Bulletin, an independent testing organisation, presented its first Virus Bulletin Award (VB100) in 1998 and to this day is the most renowned accolade in the industry. To earn an award, an anti-malware product must detect all current “in‐the‐wild” viruses, using out of the box defaults, without producing any false positives.

Richard Marko, ESET chief executive, said, “We are honoured to be the first to receive 100 VB100 Awards for a single product. Since the first VB100 Award in 1998, we have grown from a small dynamic company made up of a few technologists, into an established endpoint security vendor with over 100 million users in more than 200 countries and territories.”

John Hawes, chief operating officer, Virus Bulletin, said, “ESET has been a top performer in our tests since 1998 and we are delighted to present their 100th VB100 award – a first for any single product over the years. ESET NOD32’s history of excellent performances and zero false positives is a clear indicator of a very well-built, well-maintained and extremely reliable product.”

“Over this period, technology has changed, malware has changed and the security industry has seen changes as well. The only real constant has been that ESET's NOD32 is the only anti-malware solution worldwide, which has never missed a single “in-the-wild” worm or virus in testing since May 1998. That consistency is what gives our users trust in our technology and has enabled ESET to become one of the top security vendors in the world,” said Marko (pictured below, holding the trophy).
