STOPzilla Awarded West Coast Labs' Checkmark Certification

August 11, 2010 | Boynton Beach, Florida

iS3 today announced that it has earned the Checkmark Certification for Anti-Spyware Installed from West Coast Labs, one of the world's foremost independent test laboratories. This certification applies to STOPzilla version 5.0.69.0, the company's flagship product.

For a product to be accredited to the Checkmark Anti-Spyware Installed certification, the desktop product must nullify all installed and active Spyware in the Checkmark test suite current at the time of testing, which is performed against unpatched Windows workstations. Each workstation is pre-infected with up to 60 distinct items of Spyware including Keyloggers, Password Stealers, Downloaders, Backdoors, Financials and Proxies.

"STOPzilla has once again passed West Coast Labs' Anti-Spyware Installed certification," noted Rick Trefzger, Chief Operating Officer of iS3. "Our advanced research process and real-time protection enables STOPzilla to stay ahead of the ever growing online threat landscape. Our customers can feel confident knowing that STOPzilla is the premier Anti-Spyware solution available today."

"Spyware continues to be a popular tactic for malware authors, and one which creates a great deal of insecurity and privacy concerns for those whose systems are infected," commented Lysa Myers, Director of Research at West Coast Labs. "Spyware comprises a myriad of different threats that are designed to give the malware author varying degrees of access to and control over an infected machine, from backdoors and keyloggers to downloaders and password-stealing trojans. West Coast Labs' Anti-Spyware Installed certification examines a product's ability to restore a system to a trustworthy state after it has been compromised."
