ProtectStar Award for BitDefender 9.0 Professional Plus

ProtectStar (PresseBox) (London, UK, ) ProtectStar Inc., the independent and worldwide operating company for IT-Security, awards the security solution “BitDefender 9.0 Professional Plus” from Softwin with the security recommendation “ProtectStar Excellent Security 2006”.

BitDefender 9.0 Professional Plus was able to fulfil all criteria for the laboratory and practical tests of the British ProtectStar test centre which are essential for a modern up-to-date security solution.

The detection rate for viruses of the integrated scan engine was defined up to 99,03 %. This is the highest detection rate ProtectStar was able to determine this year.

What is also worth mentioning is that the BitDefender scan engine is one of the few products within the IT security market which does not have any difficulties with the “Zip of Death” archives from ProtectStar.

The integrated Personal Firewall passed during all test cycles all currently known attack and security tests as well as a duration-penetration test over several hours.

In the area of DoS attacks (Denial of Service) the firewall also proved to be very robust.

The integrated scan engine as well as the firewall and antispyware module successfully passed all test series from the ProtectStar test centre. All mentioned modules offer a very good basic protection.

The ProtectStar testing engineers think it is especially remarkable that the BitDefender Security solution has a good performance in fact it is one of the fastest security solutions within the IT security market.

Based on the presented performance ProtectStar will take BitDefender 9.0 Professional Plus up as recommended product of the month for May 2006.
