Gold and silver awards

ESET was crowned with a Gold Award for producing the fewest number of false positives. As the report notes, "False positives can cause as much trouble as a real infection," and avoiding them is of key importance to high-quality IT security. As part of the testing process, AV-Comparatives carried out extensive false-positive testing and found ESET to have the lowest rate of all companies participating.
ESET also picked up a Silver Award for the Performance Test, which assesses each product's impact on system performance. Security products that perform well in this space keep users safe while having very little impact on system speed and performance.

It concluded that ESET Endpoint Security and Remote Administrator "is powerful and capable, and certainly able to scale up."
