AV-TEST Award 2019 for NortonLifeLock

With the AV-TEST Award, the leading test institute for IT security selects each year the best products in their class. To be honored with one of the internationally renowned awards, however, IT security products have to score the highest ratings in comprehensive tests throughout the test period of one full year. NortonLifeLock managed to achieve precisely that with two products. The AV-TEST Awards in the test categories of performance (Consumer) and protection (Consumer) as well as the Best Android Security Award go to NortonLifeLock in 2019.

The AV-TEST certificate: excellent performance documented

Already upon receipt of an AV-TEST certificate, an IT security product proves that it complies with the strictest test criteria and lives up to "Made in Germany" product analyses. Around the globe, consumers, corporate users, government agencies and consulting firms for over 15 years have trusted in the performance capability of security products, as certified by AV-TEST. Moreover, IT trade publications, along with large mainstream media, have been regularly guided by the published product tests, carried out in the labs of the renowned AV-TEST Institute under realistic test scenarios to evaluate the latest threats. Products tested and certified with utmost due diligence by AV-TEST guarantee the best possible protection against current threats. Products that demonstrate outstanding performance within the scope of certification tests are designated by AV-TEST as a "Top Product".

AV-TEST Awards for NortonLifeLock – certified proof of peak excellence

In order to clearly differentiate themselves from their competitors, manufacturers of security solutions also receive a unique opportunity each year: winning one of the coveted AV-TEST Awards. Only products that make a high-performance finish in the AV-TEST labs throughout the test period of an entire year are allowed to claim this proof of absolute peak performance. With the AV-TEST Awards, a security product proves not only its technical superiority. Above all, it proves that it is documented as being the best the market currently has to offer in the fight against cyber attacks. 

With "Norton Security“ and "Norton Mobile Security" (both part of the "Norton 360" solution), NortonLifeLock put two top contenders into the lineup in 2019 which were able to meet the high standards of the AV-TEST Institute. In the consumer field, NortonLifeLock receives recognition for best protection as well as best performance and is thus given the Best Protection 2019 and Best Performance 2019 Awards by the AV-TEST Institute. In addition, NortonLifeLock with its mobile solution also garnered the Best Android Security 2019 Award.

"The protection solutions from NortonLifeLock consistently delivered top scores in our tests, both in terms of protection and performance measurements. This achievement definitely deserves two awards", says Andreas Marx, CEO of AV-TEST. Hardly any other software was able to achieve such stellar results in the categories of protection and performance in the annual test. Which is why NortonLifeLock receives the Protection Award and also the Performance Award for consumer software. Recognition for Best Android Security also goes to NortonLifeLock.
