F-Secure IS 2014 and AV-Comparatives ~ Real-World Protection Test October 2013
F-Secure achieves 7th place out of 21 Security vendors; 99.4% successfully blocked; http://www.av-comparatives.org/factsheet-real-world-protection-test-october-2013/
"The results are based on the test set of 527 live test cases (malicious URLs found in the field),
consisting of working exploits (i.e. drive-by downloads), URLs pointing directly to malware, and a few
malicious files from email attachments. The latter are downloaded and executed via webmail. Thus
exactly the same infection vectors are used as a typical user would experience in everyday life. The
test-cases used cover a wide range of current malicious sites and provide insights into the protection
given by the various products (using all their protection features) while surfing the web. "
"We would like to point out that while some products were able to reach 100% protection rates in a
test, it does not mean that these products will always protect against all threats on the web. It just
means that they were able to block 100% of the widespread malicious samples used in a test".
