Latest K7 Award by VB-100
K7 products have appeared in most of our desktop tests over the last few years, with a decent number of passes. The current version installs in decent time with a reboot required, and presents a tough-looking GUI with a military theme. The layout is simple and clear with good status information and decent controls. Stability was flawless throughout, with no issues noted.
Scanning speeds were not bad, and overheads a little high initially but soon became very light. RAM use was around average, CPU use rather low, and our set of activities ran through very quickly.
Detection was pretty good in the reactive sets, dropping away a little into the proactive weeks, but there were no issues in the WildList or clean sets and a VB100 award is earned by K7.
