Setting up a functioning virus lab to maintain that engine must have been quite a task, but Agnitum seems to have managed it in impressive time, making for a smooth transition to a fully operational product.

Agnitum, the PC security experts, are delighted to announce a milestone Virus Bulletin certification under Windows 7. Outpost Security Suite Pro, ver. 8.1, makes a spectacular reappearance on the VB100 scene for the first time after the virus lab transition period.

This award in Windows 7-based comparatives comes in handy to pay homage to Agnitum’s brand-new virus lab. In less than 12 months the lab performed a smooth transition of inherited antivirus technology to match the high industry standards.

The anti-malware module in Agnitum’s flagship product Outpost Security Suite Pro delivered flawless protection by detecting 100% of the samples from the main list and extended WildList collection, without a single false positive.

August 2013 comparative encompassed a host of 49 participants. Adding up to robust detection showings, Outpost garnered a "Solid" stability rating, outperforming 37 competitors with minor and major issues.

VirusBulletin observers gave credit to Agnitum’s virus lab for impressive efficiency and time-to-market:

"Setting up a functioning virus lab to maintain that engine must have been quite a task, but Agnitum seems to have managed it in impressive time, making for a smooth transition to a fully operational product".

Behind tangible results goes less visible yet no less significant work as a full-scaled antivirus manufacturer. Agnitum’s lab actively participates in sample exchange networks and contributes to the WildList (the list of the most widespread malware samples detected by security analysts).

On the networking front, Agnitum has attended a host of security events in the last two years, including CARO Workshop, AMTSO meetings and VB2012 conference. VB2013 in Berlin is on the company’s agenda as well.
