The AV-TEST Award – a game changer in the IT security industry

Even achieving a test certificate in regular and successfully completed tests is clear recognition of excellence. Because it recommends a product that has been evaluated by the AV-TEST Institute as a powerful tool in fending off IT threats. Certified security products and services receive the clear buying recommendation of our laboratory experts. In addition, products for Windows with achievements clearly above the industry standard are honored by rewarding them the extra evaluation of "Top Product". 

The AV-TEST Award, however, goes even far beyond that. The coveted trophy is earned only by IT security products that were able to set new standards in all the tests during the test period of the past year. It is thus recognized certification of continuous peak achievements by manufacturers and developers, and it recognizes security products at the highest level. At the same time, this award fosters trust among consumers, corporate users and representatives of the media across the globe, who are looking at and guided by the regular product tests of the AV-TEST Institute. 

AV-TEST Award for Avira – certified proof of excellence

With its security program "Antivirus Pro", Avira managed in 2020 to prove itself in a total of two test categories for consumer products under Windows 10 as a game changer in the continuous battle against cybercriminals. 
"Antivirus Pro" from Avira receives the AV-TEST Best Performance 2020 Award, thanks to its extremely small load on system resources with simultaneously successful protection of consumer devices under Windows 10.

Due to its extremely low false alarm rate, "Antivirus Pro" from Avira did a superb job of supporting users of consumer devices under Windows in fending off cybercriminals and thus also receives the AV-TEST Best Usability 2020 Award.

With an excellent performance, "Antivirus Pro“ from Avira underscores its technical superiority far above the industry average and proves that it is the best the market currently has to offer in the relevant test categories in the battle against online threats. 

"The extremely low false alarm rate of 'Antivirus Pro' stands out above the rest. Moreover, the security package requires only a minimum of system resources, which makes it a clear recommendation for consumer users", says Andreas Marx, CEO of AV-TEST.
