AV-TEST Award 2019 for Symantec (Broadcom)

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. Symantec managed to achieve precisely that with two products. The AV-TEST Awards in the test categories of protection and performance for corporate user products go to Symantec 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 Symantec – 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 "Endpoint Protection" and "Endpoint Protection Cloud", Symantec put two top contenders into the lineup in 2019 which were able to meet the high standards of the AV-TEST Institute. In the corporate field, Symantec 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. 

"Superb malware defense with minimal reduction of system performance is how to describe both Symantec products, 'Endpoint Protection Cloud' and 'Endpoint Protection'. For this performance, both products are each receiving the Protection Award and the Performance Award", 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. And that is why Symantec receives the Protection Award and also the Performance Award for business software.
