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 PC Matic – certified proof of peak excellence

With its security program "Home", PC Matic managed in 2020 to prove itself in the competition of consumer products under Windows 10 as a game changer in the continuous battle against cybercriminals. 

"Home" combined strong threat prevention with minimal system load. The consumer product from PC Matic delivered proof of this over the test period of an entire year. Consequently, the Best Performance 2020 Award for consumer products under Windows is presented to PC Matic.

"With the use of 'Home' in the fight against cybercriminals, consumers can rely on a high-performance product that has continued to prove its worth in extensive tests. PC Matic manages to consistently keep the load on system resources to a minimal level, thus earning the Best Performance 2020 Award", remarks Andreas Marx, CEO from AV-TEST.
