BitDefender for Samba Linux File Servers Receives Virus Bulletin 100% Certification

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. --(Business Wire)-- April 26, 2006 -- BitDefender(R), an award-winning provider of antivirus software and data security solutions, today announced that BitDefender for Samba File Servers was awarded a VB100% certificate from Virus Bulletin for its ability to detect 100% of the viruses on the WildList. Tested by Virus Bulletin on a Red Hat Linux 9 system, BitDefender's powerful security solution was proven once again to be one of the most secure solutions available for Samba file servers.

BitDefender for Samba Linux File Servers is a secure content inspection solution which provides antivirus protection at the samba share level, scanning all accessed files (read and/or written) for known and unknown malware. The multi-platform virus detection technology incorporated into the BitDefender Engine offers real-time protection against more than 90,000 Windows, DOS, Linux, Unix, macro viruses, and Trojans. This feature is particularly useful if the server is configured with shared folders that are used by network clients running other operating systems. An extremely efficient internal cache technology is employed to increase on-access scanning speed.

The VB100% certification has for years been recognized as one of the definitive guides for the performance of an antivirus product. The WildList Organization ( collects monthly virus reports from anti-virus experts around the world. The data from the reports is compiled to produce The WildList - a list of those viruses currently spreading throughout a diverse user population. A virus that is reported by two or more of the WildList reporters will appear in the top-half of the list and is deemed to be 'In the Wild'.

Virus Bulletin magazine tests the leading antivirus solutions against the viruses which appear in the 'In the Wild' list. Only those antivirus solutions that achieve full protection from these latest viruses are considered for the VB100% certification.

"We are very pleased at receiving yet another VB100% certification for BitDefender's security software," commented Alexandru Balan, BitDefender Product Marketing Manager.
