PC Matic 3.0 Earns AV-Test Certification In Latest Testing
PC Matic first tested with AV-Test in the fall of 2017, and earned its first AV-Test certification at that time. In May and June of 2018, AV-Test conducted another round of testing which included the latest version of PC Matic 3.0. The testing resulted in PC Matic being awarded another AV-Test Certification after achieving high marks across their protection and performance testing.
PC Matic‘s Super Shield was able to block 98.28% of the real-world threats including zero-day attacks and intrusive web and email threats. In addition, PC Matic blocked 99.95% of prevalent malware found in the previous four weeks of testing. Although these scores are great, we can do better. Our development team is reviewing what was missed, and how the software can be enhanced to score better in future testing.
In addition to high protection scores, PC Matic outscored every other tested security solution in performance measures. According to the industry averages, PC Matic was over two-times more efficient than alternative programs. Due to this level of efficiency, PC Matic had a lower impact on the computer’s speed during daily usage.
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 1.6 million known good samples. After being tested against those samples in May and June, the total false positives reported were 62. This comes down to .0037% false positive rate or 99.9963% 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.
