Virus Bulletin's renowned VB100 certification programme


VB100 certification

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.

To display a VB100 logo, a product must:

  • Prove it can detect at least 99.5% of malware samples listed as 'In the Wild' by the WildList Organization
  • Generate no more than 0.01% false positives when scanning an extensive test set of clean samples

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].

Results history

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.
