Kaspersky Awarded Advanced+ for False Alarm Test

What do you feel when your antivirus tells you that you had a virus infection but it is actually not? You will be scared isn’t it? When you realized that it is a false alarm, then you will begin to get pissed off over your antivirus for giving you the false alarm.

Being able to detect a virus is a good thing for an antivirus. However, over doing it up to the level of bringing false alarm is not a good thing anymore. This will scare most of the users out for no reason.

Kaspersky Lab is awarded Advanced+ for this test where it was conducted by AV Comparatives with a few more top antivirus around the world. Out of 200,000 samples, only one time Kaspersky had bring out the false alarm.

McAfee topped the test results with no false alarm on those samples. On the other side, those free antivirus like AVG and Avast were also used in this test and resulted terribly where a lot of false alarm were detected.

After going through this test report, I had begun to realize that free antivirus have the weakness in giving out false alarm. The paid antivirus seems to be more reliable when it comes to virus detection whether it is for real or not.

As a result, Kaspersky with only one false alarm detected is the antivirus to go. I had been using it for years and had been very satisfy with it. If you would like to know more about Kaspersky’s product and its tips & tricks, just head over to this page.

    I agree that Kaspersky is one of the most reliable anti virus today. I’m a little bit surprise that Mcafee scored perfect.
