Netintelligence awarded Anti Virus & Anti Spyware certification


(GLASGOW) Netintelligence, the leading security software as service solution provider, has announced today that it has received the prestigious West Coast Labs Checkmark Certification for both its desktop Anti Virus and its Anti Spyware components.

Following a series of real-world tests aimed at reflecting the kind of corporate desktop environments in which the solutions are deployed, Netintelligence met the demanding criteria as determined by West Coast Labs for product certification. For a company to be certified to the Spyware Checkmark, the product must be able to detect Trojans, Key-Loggers, and other assorted Malware in the West Coast Labs Spyware test suite. The product should not cause any false alarms (based on testing against the West Coast Labs alarm test suite). For the Anti Virus Checkmark to be awarded a product must be able to detect all viruses in the wild.

"We are delighted that Netintelligence has been awarded the Checkmark for both our desktop Anti Virus & Anti Spyware solutions” stated Phil Worms, Netintelligence’s Product Marketing Director. ”We have now been awarded Checkmarks for Anti Virus, Anti Spyware and Content Filtration which provide our customers with an independent endorsement of the levels of desktop protection that we offer”.

“The Anti Virus & Anti Spyware components contained within our service are built upon Kaspersky Labs multi award winning technology and these awards simply re-affirms our belief that we have partnered with the very best in this field”.

The Checkmark system has been developed by West Coast Labs, an independent research and test centre. It provides a reliable means of authenticating products and certifying those of the highest quality.
