ESET antivirus has taken another VB100 award

December 2009 - 59th VB100 award.

NOD32 wins VB100 award again in December 2009 - the 59th! The December 2009 comparative review was conducted on the Windows 7 platform, showcasing ESET's continued support for the Workstation in either home or business environments.
"ESET's NOD32 has an excellent history in VB100 testing, with excellence in both detection rates and speeds," said John Hawes, Virus Bulletin. "Detection rates in the expanded polymorphic sets were impeccable, and fairly reasonable in the trojan and RAP sets. With the WildList covered with no difficulties and no false positives or other issues, ESET earns another VB100."
Individuals & Organizations Running Windows 7 within their home or offices can confidently protect their systems with ESET NOD32 Antivirus!

In a routine testing by Virus Bulletin, ESET antivirus has taken yet another VB100 award.

This brings the ESET Antivirus VB100 award total to 59 - still the highest of any antivirus vendor!  
NOD32 combines excellent detection of known viruses with powerful heuristic scanning for unknown viruses:
The zero-day attack, viruses, worms, and spyware are constantly evolving as malware writers attempt to circumvent security software. Traditional signature-based antivirus is reactive. Instead of trying to keep up with them, ThreatSense® stays a few steps ahead. The ThreatSense® engine is a sophisticated, well-balanced system of advanced heuristics and malware signatures, providing the best detection without compromising speed.

nod32 Threatsense - how it works

For many existing viruses, ThreatSense® includes a traditional form of malware signatures. ThreatSense® also utilizes next generation generic signatures to quickly detect known malware families and their future variants. This more adaptive form of signature specification enhances the ability of ThreatSense® to detect future variants.

Certain methods of heuristics can detect some basic macro and script viruses. ThreatSense's® Advanced Heuristics engine enables detection of malware not specified in the signature database. It proactively decodes and analyzes executable code in a protected virtual environment in order to identify increasingly sophisticated malicious behavior, characteristic of today.s evolving threats. For example, WIN32 worms, backdoor programs, and trojans. This finely tuned engine catches more than 90% of so-called zero-day attack worms and viruses, which most other vendors miss without a signature update.

Archiving & Packing are techniques used by malware writers to circumvent signature-based detection. ThreatSense® includes a generic unpacking and emulation technology to decode virtually any hidden malware, in wrappers or modified by runtime packers. This sophisticated algorithm thwarts virus writers' efforts to go undetected.

This blended approach to detection leverages the benefits of each technology and makes NOD32 the fastest, most accurate, and lowest impact solution in the industry.

An Early Warning System ThreatSense.Net extends the power of ThreatSense's® powerful analytics on a global scale and acts as an early warning system. By automatically (or manually) submitting samples of new suspected malware to threat lab researchers for analysis, ThreatSense.Net helps close the window of vulnerability to new threats, including the zero-day attack.

ESET clients receive notification of new malware outbreaks and tips on how to protect themselves via this feedback loop as well. Globally collected information and statistics are made available online at

======Soooooooo For simple use Nod32 is best.
