AV-TEST Award 2021 for Trellix/FireEye
The internationally renowned AV-TEST Institute has crowned the best IT security products of the year for consumers and corporate users with the AV-TEST Award 2021. Over an evaluation period of 12 months, involving comprehensive testing, the experts documented the top scores of all the products and have now decided on the awards for these outstanding results. The 2021 Award in the test category of Best Performance for Corporate Users goes to Trellix/FireEye Endpoint Security.
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.
AV-TEST Award for Trellix/FireEye – in recognition of outstanding performance
In the category of best protection solutions for corporate users, Trellix/FireEye received recognition for its powerful performance throughout the year of 2021. Due to the extremely low usage of system resources measured by the lab, along with successful protection of Windows PCs for corporate users, the solution Trellix/FireEye Endpoint Security earned the AV-TEST Best Performance 2021 Award for Corporate Users.
"The American provider Trellix/FireEye demonstrated excellent performance in all the tests in 2021. In the category of Performance, the overall findings not only far exceeded the industry average but also topped the charts of the comparative tests. That is why Trellix/FireEye also deserved the Performance Award", says Maik Morgenstern, CEO of AV-TEST.
The AV-TEST Institute wishes every success to FireEye and McAfee (corporate sector) in their merging to form the new company Trellix.
