PR - Jan 23, 2015 - Kaspersky Lab Products Lead the Way in all Dennis Technology Labs Q4 Test

According to the results of Internet security product testing carried out by Dennis Technology Labs in Q4 2014, Kaspersky Lab products proved to be the most effective solutions for home users, small business and enterprises respectively. Kaspersky Internet Security, Kaspersky Small Office Security and Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business achieved the highest possible scores in the three respective tests and received the test lab’s top awards – AAA certificates.

To identify the most effective solution, Dennis Technology Labs experts calculate a Total Accuracy Rating based on the results of two independent studies. The first study evaluates how effectively each product combats the latest Internet threats, i.e. those detected within the last 24 hours.

The second assesses how a product responds to objects that are known to be safe. Points were given to solutions being tested for successfully detecting and blocking malware and for allowing legitimate software to run. Points were subtracted in the event of errors. In all three tests Kaspersky Lab’s products achieved the maximum possible score of 1140 points.

Today, businesses are challenged with easily managing, securing and safeguarding assets such as people, property and things in remote sites. Limitations on bandwidth availability and the expense of alternative solutions or on-site personnel coverage makes it very difficult to protect and secure assets across distributed locations and field operations.

Cisco announced today Connected Safety and Security solutions and collaboration with a group of ecosystem companies that remedy these challenges and leverage the new capabilities and benefits of the Internet of Things (IoT) to help businesses and governments cut costs and provide better safety.

For instance:
  • VSM’s Connected Edge Storage (CES) feature provides the flexibility to store video at the edge, on cameras with the intelligent ability to transfer the data centrally on demand or automatically to preserve limited bandwidth to remote sites.
  • The AGT (AGT International) and Cisco solutions collect data from sensors and cameras, and filters content using sophisticated analytics to identify relevant information.
