AntiVir Workstation obtains "VB100%" under Windows NT 4.0

Eighth award in a row for a H+BEDV product

Tettnang, 7 February 2006 – "Virus Bulletin", the professional journal for IT-security renowned worldwide, examined the virus detection under the Windows NT 4.0 in the latest test. AntiVir Workstation operating system, the product of the German security expert H+BEDV Datentechnik GmbH, obtained the VB100% Award for the full detection of all "In the Wild" viruses.

This performance is no coincidence at all but the result of continuous improvements and trend setting innovations of the AntiVir products in terms of a higher degree of security for the users. AntiVir has already obtained the seal of quality in the past two years in the categories Linux, Windows XP and Windows Server. On the one hand AntiVir Workstation prevents the intrusion or discharge of malware and it enables to isolate and repair infected files. On the other hand, the security solution for client computers stands out due to its ease of operation.

The virus scanner of 24 antivirus software producers had to take a test set of viruses from the Wildlist as well as a large malware zoo consisting of macro viruses, polymorph viruses and standard viruses. The VB100% Award is only assigned to products that manage to detect all "In the Wild" viruses in both tests and that report no clean files as infected.

This is how the AntiVir products obtained the eighth VB100% Award without interruptions.
