BitDefender, an award-winning provider of antivirus software and data security solutions, announced that BitDefender 9 Professional Plus received the top rating of Advanced+ in AV-Comparatives May 2006 Retrospective/ProActive Detection test (www.av-comparatives.org).

AV-Comparatives, an independent testing institution, analyzed the effectiveness and reliability of the proactive detection module of 16 antivirus vendors against unidentified or mutated infiltrations. The tests are conducted four times a year and BitDefender has consistently received top certification. The results show that BitDefender has outstanding proactive protection, having detected more than half of the AV-Comparatives worms and backdoors collection.

Powered by BitDefender's unique B-HAVE heuristics-based scanning engines, BitDefender 9 Professional Plus integrates antivirus, antispyware, firewall and antispam modules into one comprehensive security package, tailored to meet the needs of computer users worldwide. Its antivirus and antispyware module ensures detection and removal of all viruses and spyware in the wild.

BitDefender's B-HAVE technology is the most advanced heuristics detection technology in the antivirus community, and has been developed using BitDefender's unique virtual and multiplatform detection methods. BitDefender is the only security software vendor to offer this type of heuristics antivirus engine at the desktop and the server level for Windows, Linux and FreeBSD platforms, giving users proactive protection against malware on any network level.

"Consumers and businesses alike are recognizing the importance of installing the strongest security software solutions available and are no longer settling for the security applications that are simply the best branded," said Bogdan Dumitru, BitDefender's chief technology officer. "Through industry recognition such as this Advanced+ certification, BitDefender is continuing to demonstrate the capabilities of its software and its growing presence as a global IT security powerhouse."
