Kaspersky Security for Linux Mail Server has received the highest VBSpam+ award from the experts at Virus Bulletin. The software detected an outstanding 99.83 per cent of spam messages without a single false positive in recent comparative testing of corporate solutions.
How the test was performed
A total of 21 corporate solutions participated in Virus Bulletin’s first test of 2013, including four cloud services. Virus Bulletin used almost 65,000 unwanted emails gathered from the Project Honey Pot and Spamfeed.me web services. In addition, the experts collected over 9,000 legitimate emails to check for false positives generated by the corporate solutions.
This collection of mail traffic was sent to mail servers running under CentOS 6.3, Ubuntu 11 or Windows Server 2003/2008, depending on the recommendations of the anti-spam solutions’ developers. The solutions participating in the test had to recognise unwanted correspondence in real time and separate it from the legitimate emails.
During testing Kaspersky Security for Linux Mail Server (previously known as Kaspersky Linux Mail Security 8.0) demonstrated a high level of protection, blocking 99.83 per cent of the spam messages. However, the Kaspersky Lab product’s main achievement was successfully passing the false positives test: all 9,000 legitimate emails that Kaspersky Security for Linux Mail Server scanned reached their intended recipient. This outstanding result was noted by the independent experts of Virus Bulletin who awarded the solution the highest VBSpam+ prize.
