eScan 2006 Wins the Quality Assurance of VB100%

“eScan 2006′ from MicroWorld Technologies has passed the VB100% test with Virus Bulletin Organization. The new power-packed version of eScan is generating world wide interest while living up to rigorous standards of performance and accuracy at all levels.

Virus Bulletin Organization, based in UK, is one of the most revered testing bodies in software industry in general, and security firms in particular. The VB 100% Award is given to those products which pass the stringent testing done at the Quality Assurance body.

There are 3 major criteria to go through in order to win this coveted award. One, the product under testing, detects all viruses “in the wild’ during both on-demand and on-access scanning. Two, it generates “no false positives’ when scanning a set of clean files. Three, the solution must fulfill these standards in its default state.

“VB 100% award is a great honour and recognition for our relentless pursuit of excellence, while it’s worthwhile to note that earlier versions of eScan too had won the same quality stamp. Software testing for us, is a continuous process deployed at all levels. Once a new feature is added, we put it through a functionality test, usability test and scalability test. Only after it gives excellent results in all three rounds, do we release that feature.” says Govind Rammurthy, CEO, MicroWorld Technologies, Inc.

MicroWorld has developed three major security products: eScan, MailScan and eConceal. eScan is a comprehensive antivirus and Content Security solution designed and developed to provide enterprises and personal computers with essential protection against Viruses, Spyware, Adware, Malware, Keyloggers, Hackers, Spammers, privacy related issues and objectionable content.

MailScan is the total Content Security and Traffic Scanning software for Mail Servers that checks the content in e-mails and its attachments for viruses and other online threats. The new offer from MicroWorld, eConceal Firewall, is a comprehensive enterprise-class firewall under beta testing.

“Right from day one, MicroWorld has believed in consistent innovation and differential thinking. Our products work with MWL Technology so that we can defeat malware at the Winsock layer itself, saving us the need to fight it out at the application level. Besides, our solutions employ sophisticated algorithms to find out newer and disguised malice” explains Govind Rammurthy, about the thought process that goes behind their products.

Ultimately, MicroWorld’s endeavour is to provide total security solutions tailored for different scenarios and varying customer needs. For sure, every recognition from globally valued standards, is an impetus for the security firm in that direction.
