Wins 3-Star Award for clearing all three criteria of testing
— eScan, a leading Information Security solution that provides proactive protection against virus, spam, trojan, and many other information security threats, has received the prestigious Three Star Award – Advanced+ from AV Comparatives for Malware Removal Test.
The award for best Malware detection & removal is given to those products who surpass the following three parameters – Removal of Malware – the anti virus product should be able to remove the malware without leaving any traces behind, Removal of leftovers – According to this rule, the anti virus product must not leave any leftovers behind or at the most the leftover shouldn’t be executable, Convenience – As per the norms of this rule, the removal process of malware should be convenient and shouldn’t require a reboot of the system. Of the 16 anti virus softwares tested, eScan was among the only 2 other brands to be awarded the certificate of “Good” in all the three parameters.
Speaking on this, Mr. Govind Rammurthy, Managing Director and CEO of eScan said, “Apart from bagging most of the AV Comparative certifications, we scored the highest in the Malware Removal Test. While a high detection rate helps in finding the existing malware present in the system, it is equally important for a security solution to completely remove the Malware. Though most anti virus softwares detect & remove Malware, there is always the possibility of Malware not getting removed completely. There may remain traces of the malware like registry entries which can lead to re-infection of the system. The test result reiterates the technology powering eScan in removing all traces of Malware from an infected system.”
eScan version 10, which was launched earlier this year, has won several awards, international and domestic and has received acclaim from various prestigious testing bodies of the IT security industry such as VB100%, AV Comparatives, PCSL and many more.
