Kaspersky Anti-Virus Wins in Spain

  • 26 March, 2004 10:38

<p>The February edition of Computer Hoy, a Spanish IT publication specialising in testing the consumer qualities of hardware and software, included comparative testing of the antivirus products most popular on the Spanish market. Kaspersky Anti-Virus 4.5 received the highest rating and was named 'Best Quality Product'.</p>
<p>The Kaspersky Labs product performed significantly better than Panda Titanium Antivirus 2004, Panda Platinum Internet Security, McAfee Internet Security Suite 2004 v. 6.0, Norton Internet Security 2004, BitDefender Professional v. 7.1, NOD32 2.0, SP Antivirus, Norman Internet Control, AVG Antivirus 7.0 Professional and eTrust EZ Armor Security Suite, all of which were also tested.</p>
<p>Products were tested in a wide range of areas, all of which reflected what a consumer looks for in a product. Among the criteria tested were ease of installation and use, effective detection of malicious code, the range and quality of services offered (e.g. multi-lingual technical support) and the frequency with which antivirus database updates are released, including reaction time to new threats. The opinion of end-users - readers of Computer Hoy - played a significant part in determining the final results.</p>
<p>Overall, Kaspersky Anti-Virus received the highest marks in each category and was therefore placed first by Computer Hoy. In naming the solution 'Best Quality Product' the reviewers stressed that 'Kaspersky Anti-Virus beat out the competition in detecting and neutralizing viruses. We recommend it to our readers as the fastest-acting, most reliable and effective antivirus."</p>

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
