AV-TEST Awards 2017 go to Symantec
The awards – a year of peak performance
There are many IT security products on the market. And as the regular tests by the AV-TEST Institute prove, many of them are good, and some are even excellent. Yet in order to earn an AV-TEST award, that's not enough. The "World Champion" title is reserved to the absolute top products offering performance that sets new standards in IT security and making a significant contribution towards prevention. The Symantec products receiving the AV-TEST awards continuously excelled in the laboratories of the AV-Test Institute over the entire test season, demonstrating peak performance in the test categories of protection and Android security. And they did so from start to finish: In six two-month intervals, these IT products for home users and corporate users were able to outperform the competition.
"In terms of risk protection, Symantec not only defends its top position, but is even able to achieve a top finish with yet another product. Because the manufacturer also offers 'Endpoint Protection Cloud', an additional top-class IT security solution for companies."
