ESET Tops the List with the Least Amount of System Impact

BRATISLAVA – ESET announces that it has secured its fourth “Advanced+” award in performance testing from AV-Comparatives, an independent research organization. The latest test measured the impact on system performance of 20 antivirus products. In addition to receiving the highest possible number of “Advanced+” awards in performance testing, ESET has received more “Advanced+” awards in retrospective tests than any other vendor, which is given to products that have excellent heuristic detection rates and low false positives.

AV-Comparatives provides a three-level ranking system of “Standard,” “Advanced” and “Advanced+” awards. To receive an “Advanced+” award, products in this particular test were compared based on how much impact the product has on a system. ESET tops the list as the product with the least amount of system impact.

“Over the years and throughout different tests, we’ve seen that ESET develops high-performing security solutions that have a small impact on system performance. Receiving once again the ‘Advanced+’ award in our most recent performance test is further validation.” said Andreas Clementi, founder and chairman for AV-Comparatives. “Additionally, ESET has always understood the importance of strong heuristics in fighting malware and continues to be the vendor with the most amount of ‘Advanced+’ awards in AV-Comparatives heuristic detection tests.”

ESET's industry-leading products, including the popular NOD32 Antivirus, ESET Smart Security, ESET Cybersecurity for Mac and ESET Mobile Security, deliver significant improvements over traditional solutions in the marketplace today. Using ESET’s advanced ThreatSense® smart-scanning technology, ESET proactively protects from new attacks and eliminates both known and unknown viruses, trojans, worms, adware, spyware, rootkits and other Internet threats.
