Renowned malware testing specialist Virus Bulletin, have updated their test result charts to reflect the latest results with Coranti emerging as the clear winner out of over 60 products. The Virus Bulletin RAP test results
measure anti-malware products’ reactive and proactive detection abilities against the most recent malware that has emerged around the world.

The latest chart is available here on the Virus Bulletin homepage.

The test measures products’ detection rates across four distinct sets of malware samples. The first three test sets comprise malware first seen in each of the three weeks prior to product submission. These measure how quickly product developers and labs react to the steady flood of new malware emerging every day across the world. A fourth test set consists of malware samples first seen in the week after product submission. This test set is used to gauge products’ ability to detect new and unknown samples proactively, using heuristic and generic techniques.
