Kaspersky Lab continues to lead the way among top IT security vendors, according to the results of InformationWeek’s 2012 Antivirus and Anti-malware Vendor Evaluation Survey. Among the nine vendors rated, Kaspersky Lab shared the highest ranking for overall performance and took the top spot for AV/anti-malware features with a ranking of 83 percent.
The InformationWeek 2012 Antivirus and Anti-malware Vendor Evaluation Survey asked 386 IT professionals to gauge their impressions of anti-virus/anti-malware vendors. Respondents only ranked vendors they had used or evaluated within the past 12 months. The core of the survey asked two sets of questions: one focused on the vendor overall, including price, general performance and product reliability, while the second focused on product-specific features such as virus and malware detection and removal.
Kaspersky Lab was ranked first or second in all of the nine feature evaluation categories ranging from Central Management to Platform Support. There was especially high praise for its accuracy of detection, efficient signature-based detection and ability to spot malware and viruses before they are executed or installed.
