Out Performing Industry Standards
PC Matic‘s SuperShield outperformed industry standards, blocking 100% of the real-world threats including zero-day attacks and intrusive web and email threats, in the latest round of testing by independent third-party testing authority, AV-Test. In addition, PC Matic blocked 100% of prevalent malware found in the previous four weeks of testing.
Compared to the previous testing scores, not only did protection scores increase but so did the performance. PC Matic earned the top score for performance, and as you can see by the chart below, outperforms every other security solution tested.
Combined, not only does PC Matic provide advanced protection, but also has the least amount of impact on endpoint performance. A win-win.
Usability and False Positives
In the usability category, AV-Test penalized PC Matic for returning a small number of false positives. The false positive test used by AV-Test is extremely robust, with over 1.5 million known good samples. After being tested against those samples in November and December, the total false positives reported were 40. This comes down to .0027% false positive rate or 99.9973% good file accuracy. The number of false positives our users see in the real world is often even lower and further shows that our patent pending globally automated whitelist is a truly innovative approach.
