ICSA Labs Certifies NOD32 in Inaugural Program

Bournemouth, UK – 21st February 2007 – ESET, the leader in proactive threat protection, today announced that ESET NOD32 v2.7 has received antivirus certification for the Microsoft Windows Vista platform (64-bit) from ICSA Labs. This is the industry’s first anti-virus certification testing program for desktop/server anti-virus products designed for the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system.

To achieve ICSA Labs Anti-Virus Certification, products must meet all criteria in the desktop/server anti-virus detection module and, if selected, the anti-virus cleaning module. Products must demonstrate that they have the capability to detect viruses on-demand, detect and prevent the replication of viruses on-access, report no false positives and log the results of virus detection attempts. The anti-virus cleaning criteria ensures that products remove in-the-wild viruses from infected files and sectors and are able to remove all viruses without adversely affecting the data or functionality that existed before becoming infected.

“ESET is pleased to have NOD32 as one of the first products certified under the inaugural Windows Vista Anti-Virus Certification Program,” said Paul Brook, Managing Director of ESET UK. “NOD32 is again at the forefront of threat detection, protecting users from a wide range of malware, on the industry’s latest operating system.”

ESET NOD32 Antivirus software offers consumers and businesses comprehensive protection in a product designed to automatically update behind-the-scenes without impacting other applications, so users always have the most current protection available. ESET NOD32 Antivirus version 2.7 utilises ThreatSense® technology, a sophisticated detection system based on advanced heuristics, to proactively identify previously unknown viruses, Trojans, spyware, rootkits and phishing attacks in real time. ThreatSense is built into NOD32’s single scanning engine to provide comprehensive protection so users do not need to rely on additional point solutions for spyware and adware protection.
