ITbrain Receives Its Second VB100 Award

In the Detection vs. Slow-Down Category for Business Products, ITbrain Anti-Malware Outranked Many Study Participants in the 2015 Windows 8.1 Comparative

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwired - Oct 13, 2015) - ITbrain Anti-Malware has received the VB100 Award for the second time, outperforming some well-known anti-virus vendors to clinch the lead in the detection vs. slowdown category of the Virus Bulletin comparative review. ITbrain is the umbrella brand for the cloud-based IT Management platform by TeamViewer.

The results of the comparative studies were drawn from 14 business malware detection products. Carried out in April before the release of Windows 10, the VB100 2015 Windows 8.1 comparative seal of approval is awarded only to anti-virus programs, which pass the rigorous testing through April by the Oxfordshire, UK-based organization, and which register no false positives. The Virus Bulletin 100 Award is a highly coveted award for every anti-virus vendor. The Virus Bulletin Magazine revolves around the prevention, detection and removal of malware and spam.

Second badge of approval
This is the second time ITbrain Anti-Malware has been accorded this award in the Virus Bulletin comparative studies after successfully making its debut in the last comparative of 2014. According to the information published on Virus Bulletin:

"Once again we saw a rapid install process and a control system operated mainly from a web-based portal and closely integrated with the main TeamViewer application suite. The certification sets were properly handled with no problems, and a second VB100 award goes to ITbrain."

Excellent Malware Detection
The comparative study illustrates the strengths of ITbrain Anti-Malware with impressive results in the detection vs. slowdown category. In this category, ITbrain Anti-Malware registered excellent scores owing to its impressive ability to detect recent malware, and received the highest possibly stability rating with "Solid-No issues observed." Virus Bulletin also ranks all antivirus programs on the delay time antivirus programs cause when performing standard activities on a PC, and ITbrain Anti-Malware recorded excellent results in this category as well.

This second VB100 certification reaffirms ITbrain Anti-Malware's commitment to delivering an anti-malware solution with the highest possible quality standard.
