Comodo, a leading Certificate Authority and Internet security organization, today announced that their Comodo Internet Security Premium (CIS) software was the only free product to receive a 100% protection rating in recent security tests. Comodo's software also showed marked improvements in the 'Performance' and 'Usability' categories over similar tests run in April/May by the same organization.

The tests, carried out by software testing firm AV-Test.org, ran through May and June 2013 and continuously evaluated 26 home user security products on the Windows 7 operating system. Each product was tested using its default settings and AV-Test.org used the most current, publicly-available version of each product. All products were allowed to update themselves at any time and had to demonstrate their capabilities using all components and protection layers. Tests focused on realistic scenarios and challenged the products against real-world threats.

AV-Test.org's 'Protection' category is broken down into two areas protection against unknown or 'zero-day' malware and protection against prevalent malware that was discovered in the past 4 weeks. The average score for these two areas across the entire industry is 92% and 98% respectively. While 5 security suites surpassed these averages and achieved 100% in both categories, Comodo's was the only product that is free to the end-user.

"Comodo Internet Security has always prioritized protection because our users demand nothing less than a perfect score," said Melih Abdulhayoglu, Comodo CEO and Chief Security Architect,"but what's especially pleasing about these results is the real progress we've made in the other key metrics of 'Performance' and 'Usability'. We're happy to prove once again that a free product can offer equivalent or better security than any paid software. For that, I'd like to thank everybody in the CIS development and QA teams for their tireless dedication and our great community over at the Comodo forums for their invaluable feedback and insight."

Comodo Internet Security Premium creates a highly protective shield against viruses and malware through its innovative 'Default Deny Protection™' system. The software uses a combination of firewall, antivirus, host intrusion prevention, automatic sandboxing and behavior analysis technologies to quickly and accurately identify safe, unsafe and questionable files. While the core CIS software is identical across all versions, the paid versions are differentiated with additional services such as live support, online storage and encryption of Wi-Fi connections at public hotspots. The free CIS Premium has also consistently topped the rolling 'Proactive Security Challenge' run by testing organization Matousec.
