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 F-Secure – certified proof of peak excellence

With its security program "SAFE", F-Secure managed in 2020 to prove itself in the test category of protection for consumer products under Windows 10 as a game changer in the continuous battle against cybercriminals. In recognition of this achievement, the AV-TEST Best Protection 2020 Award is presented to "SAFE" from F-Secure. 

In addition, "SAFE" from F-Secure receives the Best Performance 2020 Award, thanks to its extremely sparing use of system resources with simultaneously outstanding protection. 

In the test category of protection, F-Secure was also able to make its mark in the tests involving corporate products: That is why the AV-TEST Institute is recognizing "PSB Computer Protection" from F-Secure with the Best Protection 2020 Award for its superb threat prevention in the business environment.

"Two awards for one product are a clear sign", says Maik Morgenstern, CEO of AV-TEST. "With 'SAFE', F-Secure offers a truly compelling security product for consumers, which clearly stands out both in terms of threat prevention and performance. To top it off, the protection offered by the business product 'PSB Computer Protection' also achieved top scores in our tests.“
