Kaspersky Anti-Virus for MS Exchange Server wins 'Best Buy' Award from leading Security Publication

The January edition of SC magazine, one of the most authoritative data security publication, has awarded Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Microsoft Exchange Server as the 'Best Buy' from their Group Anti-Virus Test. They tested a range of anti-virus products to see how they would handle a serious virus outbreak, looking for features such as reporting and outbreak controls, and investigating how the standard reporting mechanisms performed when presented with a massive workload.

The reviewer was particularly impressed with the speed of the product, "Kaspersky has come up trumps with very fast software with some neat features. Queuing the mail was just moments slower than the top runners with 49 minutes, but processing was fastest of the lot."

Another key area of interest was the advanced administrative tools available, "One of the product's strong points is a superb template system for editing alerts and messages, all driven from within the MMC snap-in that drives everything except the reporting function, which is a separate tool."

Confirming why Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Microsoft Exchange Server was awarded 'Best Buy' the review concluded, "For its strong performance and excellent template system, Best Buy goes to Kaspersky Anti-Virus."
