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 Symantec – certified proof of peak excellence

In the test year of 2020, Symantec managed to rise to the top with a total of two corporate products. That is why the AV-TEST Institute is recognizing both "Endpoint Security Complete" under Windows 10 and "Endpoint Protection for Mac" from Symantec with the Best Usability 2020 Award, as well as the Best MacOS Security 2020 Award for superb threat prevention.

"Symantec clearly demonstrates what outstanding protection for corporate products should look like. Regardless of whether the enterprise uses Windows or MacOS, with 'Endpoint Security Complete' and 'Endpoint Protection for Mac', companies can rely on security packages that have earned the AV-TEST Best Usability 2020 and Best MacOS Security 2020 Awards, thanks to excellent achievements", explains Maik Morgenstern, CEO from AV-TEST.
