ESET earns top prize with SE Labs


ESET earned the AAA award, the highest possible prize, for its ESET Endpoint Security solution in SE Labs’ Q3 Enterprise Endpoint Protection awards. This is the second time that ESET has been recognized with SE Labs’ top award in 2020, after receiving the same rating in Q1.

SE Labs is an independently run testing company that aims to improve information technology security by assessing products and services designed to detect attacks, protect against intrusions or both. It tested nine endpoint security solutions between July and September 2020 to evaluate how effective the products were at detecting and protecting against threats in real time. ESET Endpoint Security received a total accuracy rating of 1,135, the second highest score of any security solution tested.

ESET Endpoint Security, which combines robust antivirus and network security software to protect businesses, was exposed to a mixture of targeted attacks and real-world public email and web-based threats in the testing process. The results demonstrate that the solution is effective at blocking malicious URLs, handling exploits, and correctly classifying legitimate applications and websites.

ESET was also recognized with the highest prize in SE Labs’ Q1 report earlier in the year, receiving the same AAA rating.

Jiri Kropáč, Head of Threat Detection Labs at ESET, commented: “ESET Endpoint Security provides customers with the best level of protection possible, and receiving this AAA rating from SE Labs is testament to that. We are constantly adapting and advancing our technology to provide a balance of cutting-edge detection and prevention and optimum performance, and this is reflected in the report’s recognition of the solution’s ability to block malicious URLs and classify applications. We are proud to be continually recognized for our offerings, and are dedicated to protecting our customers from cybersecurity threats.”
