Computer Bild, one of Europe’s most popular IT magazines published in nine countries, has ranked Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 as the best consumer security software product. This result was achieved in its comparative testing, the results of which were published in its second issue of 2012, in which eight security suites from different vendors were evaluated. Based on a large number of parameters, Computer Bild came to the conclusion that Kaspersky Lab’s product “established its superiority” against all competitors.
In particular, Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 was the only product to neutralise all active malware on an infected system. It also achieved the best result in a real-world test, effectively blocking all malicious objects before they could infiltrate the test system. Apart from best-in-the-class effectiveness of malware detection, Computer Bild also highlighted its easy-to-use interface and minimal impact on resources as the product’s advantages.
The detailed results of the testing show that the Computer Bild experts also noted the usefulness of Kaspersky Lab’s rescue disk and the availability of a wide range of additional security features, such as Parental Control, ad-blocker, vulnerability scan and others. Commenting on the results, Nikita Shvetsov, Director of Antimalware Research at Kaspersky Lab, said: “Computer Bild is well known for its detailed approach to comparative testing. They take into account all the different characteristics of a product in order to come up with a well-justified verdict. That is why we especially welcome the results of the latest security software review, where our product has come out on top thanks to the effectiveness of protection, its complete feature set, and ease of use.”
