ESET Touts Advanced+ Rating

ESET's NOD32 receives Advanced+ rating from AV-comparatives

SAN DIEGO -- In a recent report released from AV-comparatives.org, ESET NOD32 is one out of only four antivirus solutions to receive an Advanced+ rating based on results of tests evaluating proactive, on-demand detection of virus/malware, false positive and scanning speed. A total of 15 antivirus solutions were involved in the comparative review. In addition, ESET also won its 41st Virus Bulletin award, extending its industry leading eight-year track record as the vendor with the most awards.

Released in November 2006, Anti-Virus Comparative No. 12 helps users discern the reality of claims made by leading antivirus providers as they relate to high proactive detection capabilities - many of which have been optimized to achieve desired results.

Speed is a key differentiator among antivirus solutions. The faster a solution performs, the better protection it offers. Many new forms of malware appear on a daily, even hourly, rate. According to the Anti-Virus Comparative report, "...this is why it's important that anti-virus products not only provide new updates, as often and as fast as possible, in order to identify those new threats, but also that they are able to detect such threats in advance with advanced heuristics and generic signature techniques. Without this ability the user has to wait for an updated release of the anti-virus product."

The cybersecurity profession struggles to retain women (figures range from 10 to 20 percent). It's particularly worrisome for an industry with a rapidly growing number of vacant positions.

So why does the shortage of women continue to be worse in security than in other IT sectors? How can men in infosec be better allies for women; and how can women be better allies for one another? What is the industry doing to fix the problem -- what's working, and what isn't?

Is this really a problem at all? Are the low numbers simply an indication that women do not want to be in cybersecurity, and is it possible that more women will never want to be in cybersecurity? How many women would we need to see in the industry to declare success?

Join Dark Reading senior editor Sara Peters and guests Angela Knox of Cloudmark, Barrett Sellers of Arbor Networks, Regina Wallace-Jones of Facebook, Steve Christey Coley of MITRE, and Chris Roosenraad of M3AAWG on Wednesday, July 13 at 1 p.m. Eastern Time to discuss all this and more.
