Tonight We Dine in Hell Posted by Sean @ 14:18 GMT

We've been working very hard this year, and all the hard work has paid off!

F-Secure has won AV-Comparatives' Whole Product Dynamic Test for 2010 and received another Advanced+ award — the seventh this year. We're currently the vendor with the most awards of the highest category given by AV-Comparatives in 2010.

The difference between the first two places in the Whole Product Dynamic Test couldn't have been tighter.

We blocked 1946 of the tested files while Symantec blocked 1936. However, Symantec additionally prompted the user for his opinion on 19 files. They received half a point each for those.

Which means that the final score was:

F-Secure: 1946
Symantec: 1945.5

Now that's narrow. We won by half a sample.

This is AV-Comparatives!

Sorry, Symantec!
