VB100 update

Posted by   Virus Bulletin on   Dec 16, 2008

MicroWorld eScan added to list of VB100 successes for December.

Due to a clerical error, the eScan product from MicroWorld Technologies was omitted from the list of products reported as taking part in the last VB100 comparative review, published at the start of this month.

After re-checking the results, VB can confirm that the product submitted by MicroWorld met all the requirements of the certification and thus qualifies for a VB100 award. The appropriate details will be updated in the VB100 section of the website as soon as possible.

VB extends its apologies to MicroWorld for omitting its product from the test results. The deadlines for the next VB100, running next month on Red Hat Linux, will be announced shortly.
