ESET security solutions top independent spam filtering tests

ESET has come out tops as the highest security solution for anti-spam protection according to not one, but two, testing authorities.

The security company recorded 99.999% spam catch rate on 177 thousand spam emails, when tested by Virus Bulletin. The catch rate saw ESET Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange Server record its third consecutive VBSpam+ award for ESET.

AV-Comparatives meanwhile tested ESET Smart Security, which recorded a spam catch rate of 99.96%, winning first place in the anti-spam test.

AV-Comparatives says of ESET Smart Security: “We found the integration of ESET Smart Security into [Microsoft] Outlook to be very simple but effective, allowing easy marking of mails or addresses as spam.

“The program blocked 99.96% of unwanted messages in our spam filtering test, the highest score of any product tested.”

Palo Luka, ESET chief technology officer, says spam protection is a central part of ESET’s multi-layered approach to next-generation security.

“We invest considerable effort into keeping our clients safe,” Luka says.

“We also work hard to keep false positives to a minimum, which is a difficult task in combination with robust spam filtering.

“Therefore we are happy that the results of these tests confirm that we are able to achieve exactly that.”
