From March to June 2014, thousands of ‘real world’ proactive detection tests were done by AV-Comparatives. The results show that our anti-malware engine detected and blocked 99.9% of threats. AV-Test also conducted a ‘real world’ detection test in which we achieved the highest score and we have also been rated #1 in the ‘false-alarm’ or ‘false positive” test.

The tests compared products that use the new XMT (Extreme Malware Terminator) Smart Engineering engine. With XMT, different technologies interact with each other to achieve new levels of efficiency, detection and disinfection power. The XMT engine is included in our new 2015 consumer product line. These tests are evidence of our superior detection technology.
