Kaspersky Lab announces that Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 and 8.0 for Windows Servers has received a VB100 award after successful testing on the Microsoft Windows 2008 Server R2 platform.
The test was carried out by the respected British publication Virus Bulletin. In all, thirty three antivirus solutions were tested, including solutions from many of the leading vendors. The solutions ran on computers under the management of a 64-bit server running Microsoft Windows 2008 Server R2.
During the tests, the security products had to detect and neutralise both known and unknown malware from a number of different collections, including: - viruses and worms from WildList.org, and worms, bots, Trojans and other polymorphous software from similar sources. The updated collections included some of the latest malware, e.g. WildList.org had new versions of the Koobface worm.
