ESET is Best at Filtering Spam, Test Confirms

ESET Mail Security outperformed all competing products in the latest test of anti-spam solutions by Virus Bulletin, an independent anti-malware testing organization.

Virus Bulletin published its latest VBSpam comparative review, a real-life test of anti-spam solutions. ESET “achieved a final score of 99.995 – once again better than that of any other product. Clearly ESET is deserving of another VBSpam+ award,“ writes Virus Bulletin in its test report.

ESET Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange Server emerged ahead of the fifteen other products tested, and was awarded a top VBSpam+ award. The ESET product missed only ten spam emails out of more than 200,000 emails, with zero false positives – even for newsletters, which most other products struggled to sort properly. The combination of excellent detection rate and superior false positives, along with the high speed of ESET’s solution, translated into an overall score of 99.995 points, the highest in the test.

In the previous VBSpam test in November 2015, ESET Mail Security also achieved excellent results, scoring 99.99 points with no false positives.

“We are proud that our customers can benefit from our products’ consistently excellent performance,” comments Ján Baláž, Product Manager at ESET.
