F-Secure SAFE for Mac scored very bad results on AV-TEST

Is there a statement from F-Secure regarding the bad results on AV-TEST?

Betreff: F-Secure SAFE for Mac scored very bad results on AV-TEST

Hi s_rosenthaler,

 

I brought this to the attention of our FSAV for Mac team. Please find their statement below:

 

Apparently in the previous tests of AV-Test, they had used a beta version of our product which had ORSP engine enabled in on-demand scanning by default. However, the production version has ORSP disabled by default for on-demand scanning, and therefore many of the samples were not detected. ORSP is still on by default when on-access scanning happens, but unfortunately in the AV-TEST (and many other tests too) they simply run the command line scanner on a collection of sample files.

Was this issue related to AV-Test and AV-Comparatives because this was not at all mentioned in their test report. Normally when they publish the results they do mention specific issues like this if any?

I am new to F-Secure, but can you tell me more about this OSRP engine?

Thanks.

You can know more about ORSP as mentioned in this Community post, @Pankaj1.
