Command F-PROT Professional Receives VB 100% Award

Popular anti-virus product detects all viruses "in the wild" in January test

1/23, 1998

Jupiter, FL -- Command Software Systems, Inc. today announced that it has received the coveted VB 100% award from Virus Bulletin in their January, 1998 issue. The award means that Command's F-PROT Professional´┐Ż detected all viruses acknowledged as being "in the wild" by Virus Bulletin. Besides the VB 100, Command's F-PROT Professional also has received the "Check Mark" designation from Secure Computing and is certified by ICSA (which changed its name from NCSA in January, 1998). Command is one of only two companies that can claim the three major anti-virus industry acknowledgments.

According to Virus Bulletin, "The anti-virus software tests are the authoritative tests recognized by the anti-virus industry. The VB 100% awards allow us to reciprocate that acknowledgment by giving the vendors a mark of achievement that can be clearly and universally recognized." Virus Bulletin, the international publication on computer virus prevention, recognition and removal, is published monthly and does not accept advertising.

Besides the 100% "In the Wild Overall" detection, Command's F-PROT Professional also returned the fastest "clean diskette" scan time. The vast majority of time, viruses are not detected by end-users and corporate customers. Therefore, the clean diskette speed is of particular importance for those who are looking for a fast and efficient anti-virus product.

Command's F-PROT Professional solutions provide users with multi-layered protection from the threat of computer viruses. This ICSA-certified scan engine offers exceptional protection from all virus types, including Word and Excel macro viruses, viruses in-the-wild, and other viruses that are passed via the Internet, e-mail, floppy disks and networks.

Command's F-PROT Professional provides premium anti-virus protection for multiple platforms including; Windows 95, Windows NT, NetWare, DOS/Windows and OS/2 Warp. Command also offers m@ilCOMMAND, an SMTP Internet e-mail gateway anti-virus solution.
