It's been more than a month's time since VB 100 published their results for April, and just now we've got down to publish some curious data arising from that comparison. Needless to say, we were interested in performance and scanning speeds Outpost demonstrated, as well as its detection rate. According to VB 100 results we compiled a small chart that reveals system files scanning speed for different products. Here you go:
This is the result for Outpost Security Suite Pro 2009. Kaspersky - the leader of this chart - is, in fact, presented with a standalone antivirus (KAV 2009), which means more velocity "by default" and with no pains, as any separate solution is lighter on resources than any security suite. Therefore, nothing to write home about. ESET submits a standalone product too, less successfully speed-wise, though. Symantec Endpoint Protection is just a bit faster than Outpost.
This gives us a clue that we're doing pretty well among the antivirus industry leaders!
