In the 90s, Dr Solomon's claimed about 80% effectiveness with their
heuristic engine, IIRC. But with the widening of the threatscape, I don't
think anyone can claim figures anywhere near that any more. On the positive
side, despite the occasional high-profile disaster, I think most of the
mainstream vendors are pretty good at avoiding false rejections.
