The following AV engines reached a near-perfect rounded 99% detection rate in a non-PUA sample set, therefore, they have been awarded with the MRG Effitas Certificate. Note that in the certification process, no distinction is made on where the detection has taken place, i.e. to be awarded, the MISS rate needs to be below 1%.
