    Holy crap, what's going on with Cisco, CrowdStrike and FireEye? How can they miss so many samples? And I wonder what they mean with "miss", did they completely fail to block the malware even with the behavior blocker? To be honest even if you missed only one sample, I already consider it to be a problem. Fortinet and Panda were the only ones with a 100% detection rate in the Real-World Protection Test.

    And both had enough FPs on the real-time test to exclude them for consideration in corp. environments. Plus Fortinet's detection on malware test was below many other tested products.

    If you factor FPs, the top performers were Kaspersky and Eset.

    Good point, they did quite poorly when it came to false positives.

    I agree. FPs can be real PITA. At work we use solution that produces quite a few of them so I have to report each to administrator usually when I don't have to deal with it. :thumbd:
