New kid on the certification block

CheckVir starts certification program

At the start of this year, CheckVir became the latest independent organisation to offer certification for anti-virus products, when the CheckVir Anti-Virus Testing project became the CheckVir Anti-Virus Certification program.

Like a number of other testing bodies, CheckVir offers two levels of certification: Standard and Advanced. The Standard certification is awarded for a product's detection capability (the product must detect all virus samples in the test set both on access and on demand), while the Advanced level examines the product's ability to repair infected objects. The results, including descriptions and summaries, are published on the CheckVir website. More information can be found at http://www.checkvir.com/.
