Facts Kaspersky Lab vs. ESET. Kaspersky Lab. The companies: principal facts. The companies: independent assessment of market position.
The system for collecting malicious program samplesis geographically distributed, with honeypots placed in numerous locations, enabling analysts to receive samples almost as soon as after they appear “in the wild”
Kaspersky Lab uses unique tools for automating collection and processing of malicious program samples.It takes just a few minutes to analyze malware samples and add their signatures to antivirus databases
Updates are tested automatically. Performing multiple operations in parallel accelerates the update testing process, which takes less than an hour
A broad range of proactive technologies developed by the company enable Kaspersky Lab products to detect most threats even BEFORE their signatures are releasedTechnologies:Kaspersky Lab’s VirusLab
Overall levels of malicious program detection
There are two main proactive protection technologies: heuristic analyzer and behavior blocker
The heuristic analyzer (heuristic) analyzes the code of objects for the typical attributes of malicious applications. Based on the results of this analysis, the heuristic concludes whether the object is potentially hostile
The behavior blockeris a program that analyzes the behavior of applications running on the user’s computer and blocks any dangerous activity (i.e., actions typically performed by malicious programs)Technologies: proactive protection
During a special proactive protection test conducted by AV-Comparatives.org, the Proactive Defense Module (behavior blocker) in Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 blocked the actions of 99%of malicious programs
During the Retrospective / ProActive test conducted by AV-Comparatives.org, the heuristic analyzer in NOD32 detected 53%of malicious programs
AV-Comparatives.org provides the following comment on the results achieved by Kaspersky Lab products:Technologies: proactive protection
Malicious programs can be proactively detected by heuristic analyzersor by behavior blockers
The proactive defense module (behavior blocker) included in Kaspersky Lab products has detected most modifications of the Warezov worm from the very start of its epidemic.
Detection of Warezov by the Proactive Defense Module in Kaspersky Lab’s version 6.0 products:
Have you heard of any companies that use ESET technologies?
However, all Kaspersky Lab failures in VB100% testing were associated with old product versions. In the past two years, all Kaspersky Lab products have successfully passed tests.Products: Virus Bulletin 100% awards
Today, there are two well-established stereotypes:
What does “the antivirus slows the system down” mean to users?
An antivirus program always affects system performance. The question is how great is this influence!
Kaspersky Lab’s version 6.0 products have minimal effect on system performance. This is confirmed by independent test results.

On demand scanning speed
Unlike on demand scanning, the antivirus monitor is always active in RAM. Because of this, it is especially important to users how much scanning of files with the antivirus monitor increases the time it takes to open or close these files

Features in Kaspersky Lab’s version 6.0 products that optimize scanning and the use of system resources:
The performance of Kaspersky Lab’s version 6.0 products has been acknowledged not only by users but by respected magazines as well:
In the documentation, the NOD32 administration system is described using a 50-workstation network as an example. This is not accidental, since using NOD32 on large networks is problematic
As an example, consider solutions for the protection of workstations
