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 Trend Micro – certified proof of peak excellence

With the security program "Apex One", Trend Micro managed in 2020 to prove itself in the test category of performance for corporate products under Windows 10 as a game changer in the continuous battle against cybercriminals. 
Also in threat prevention, Trend Micro was able to set new standards for mobile devices of consumers in 2020. Throughout the 2020 test period, the security solution "Mobile Security" showed what excellent protection against attacks targeting private mobile devices should look like, and is thus receiving the Best Android Security 2020 Award. 

"In the test area of both corporate and consumer products, Trend Micro was able to make everyone sit up and take notice, thus earning a total of two AV-TEST awards. With its products 'Apex One' and 'Mobile Security', Trend Micro is one of the pioneers in the IT security industry", praises Guido Habicht, CEO of AV-TEST.
