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.
