Detection rates

Based on the 2016 File Detection Test conducted by AV-Comparatives last March, Kaspersky’s Detection Rate is 99.9%. Although Kaspersky shares the same detection rate as AVIRA, the score is still the highest among any other Internet Security companies that took the AV-Comparatives test. In the recent evaluations of German AV-Test, Kaspersky detected 0% false positives and 100% threats. This means that Kaspersky detects all kinds of internet security threats but doesn’t include annoying unnecessary false reports.
