Addendum: Windows 2000 Advanced Server Comparative Review

Posted by   Virus Bulletin on   Dec 1, 2002

After re-testing, Trend's ServerProtect product gains a VB 100% award.

In the November 2002 Comparative Review Trend's ServerProtect was reported to have failed to achieve full detection of ItW virus samples and thus was not given a VB 100% award (see VB November 2002, p.23). The review stated, 'Trend's offering suffered from slightly dated virus definitions. A definition update was promised, but did not arrive.' Following further investigation, however, it has come to light that fate conspired against the developers at Trend who sent the update at the exact time that VB was suffering a mail server outage. Mail servers rectified, the updates were re-sent, installed, tested and we are happy to announce that Trend ServerProtect 5.35 1047 earned a VB 100% award, having detected all samples in the ItW set - including W32/CTX.A - and generated no false positives. We apologise to Trend for the problems
