ESET has been awarded a VBSpam+ certification in a recent report from Virus Bulletin, a world-renowned independent testing and certification body. The ESET Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange Server software has been awarded this certification in the VBSpam Email Security Comparative Review March 2019. The review analyzed 11 full email security solutions and seven blacklists to measure their performance against various streams of wanted, unwanted and malicious emails.
The VBSpam certification process is a world-leading test of enterprise email security solutions, providing insight into the performance of leading spam-filtering technologies. ESET Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange Server acquired the highest rating of SPAM+, one of only four products to achieve this. As a result, ESET secured a shared first place with competitor product FortiMail.
In addition to testing the catch rate of spam emails, the March 2019 review saw the debut of the “phishing” subcategory of emails — pertaining to emails containing links that lead to either a fake login page or to malware downloads. ESET was the only product reviewed to not miss a single phishing email, securing a 100.00% phishing catch rate.
Commenting on the results, Jakub Debski, Chief product officer at ESET, said, “ESET’s recognition as a leader in enterprise email security is a testament to our dedication in providing businesses with the absolute best in IT security. Every business relies on email communication and, with email security growing increasingly vital to enterprise safety, we are proud to provide a reliable solution to businesses around the world.”
