The VB100 award is a certification of products which meet the basic standards required to be recognised as legitimate and properly functioning anti-malware solutions.

All solutions tested are submitted for testing by their developers. Full procedures of the certification scheme can be found on the methodology page.
Any developers interested in submitting anti-malware products for review should contact the test team by email using [email protected].
An archive of VB100 test results is available, allowing users to view the performance of a vendor or solution over time. While a single test can only show a snapshot of a product's capabilities at a specific moment in time, this long-term view can be used as a guide to how vendors are likely to perform in the future. Listings of results by product can also be found in our test archives.
