Virus Bulletin just published their September 2010 test results (, and Symantec Brightmail Gateway once against received a VBSpam designation - our 5th consecutive recognition. 

In this month's test, Symantec Brightmail Gateway registered an effectiveness score of 99.64%, with 0 false positives!  It is great to see external validation for the premium that Symantec places on balancing very high effectiveness (over 99%) with accuracy (low false positives) in fighting spam.

You may be familiar with the Virus Bulletin name - Virus Bulletin is an independent third party that has been running comparative tests on antivirus technologies for over a decade.  Symantec's antivirus engines have achieved over 40 VB100 awards during this time. 

Our team is thrilled with the latest results on the VBSpam testing. Symantec Brightmail Gateway is a core component of Symantec Protection Suite (Enterprise Edition and Advanced Business Edition), and is also available as a stand-alone enterprise product and the Symantec Brightmail Gateway Small Business Edition, for customers with fewer than 250 employees.
