Latest VB100 announced

Posted by   Virus Bulletin on   Jun 9, 2010

Solutions for Windows Vista to be put through their paces.

The latest round of VB100 testing has been announced, with a comparative to be run on Microsoft's Windows Vista in July. Products supporting the platform will be measured against the usual strict criteria to find if they are worthy of a coveted VB100 award.

After a mammoth 60 products took part in the recent comparative on Windows XP, the VB lab is gearing up for another large haul of solutions to compare, with several newcomers expected to join the fray and see how they fare in the growing battery of tests which VB100 contenders are put through.

The deadline for the comparative has been set for Wednesday, June 23rd, with the testset deadline on June 19th. Solutions hoping to achieve certification will have to detect all samples included on the latest WildList available on that date, without false positives in VBs extensive clean sets.

The review will also cover a range of other criteria including design and usability of solutions, and detection rates against a range of additional test sets, including VB's unique RAP test system comparing detection ability of known and new samples. A wide set of performance measures, greatly expanded in recent tests, will compare the system resources consumed by solutions in depth.

Product vendors interested in taking part in the comparative should contact John Hawes for further information. The following test will be on Windows Server 2003 in September, with a return to Windows 7 expected later in the year - the schedule for future comparatives is here.

The results of the test will appear in the August issue of Virus Bulletin, with the detailed results available to subscribers only - see here for details of how to subscribe.
