AV-TEST Award – proof of IT security

Each product evaluated at the AV-TEST Institute is required to undergo demanding and realistic tests in the lab over the course of an entire year. The challenge is to consistently excel in the test categories of Protection, Performance and Usability. Successful products each then receive a test certificate for tested security against IT threats. To top it off, a Windows product that also performs significantly better than the industry standard receives the additional accolade of "Top Product".

If a product manages to maintain its stellar performance in several or all test categories throughout the entire year, it qualifies as candidate for the sought-after AV-TEST Awards. This well-known award is now in its 11th year, and for many companies, it serves as vital proof that their efforts to create a secure product have paid off. Because special award distinction by a renowned, independent institute fosters a high level of confidence, not only in the IT security industry but also among customers in the consumer and corporate sector. Likewise, it is a just reward to providers of security solutions who consistently invest in research and development.

In the category of best protection solutions for corporate users, Bitdefender also received additional recognition for its strong protection throughout the entire year. The Institute bestowed the AV-TEST Best Protection 2021 Award on the corporate solution Bitdefender Endpoint Security (Ultra).

For best protection and strong security of mobile Android devices for consumers, the experts gave the AV-TEST Best Android Security 2021 Award to the protection app Bitdefender Mobile Security. Because in fending off threats on Android systems, users also need reliable protection at their side.
