Only the best IT protection solutions are contenders for the internationally recognized AV-TEST Awards. After all, with this award, the independent test institute honors only the most effective security products that have shown outstanding performance during a one-year test phase and thus set new standards for the IT security industry.

Simply the Best!

Products certified by the AV-TEST Institute are tested according to the state of the art in technology and have a worldwide reputation for reliable protection. End users, corporate users, public agencies, providers of IT security products and media around the globe trust in the exact product analyses "Made in Germany". Products tested and certified with utmost due diligence by AV-TEST guarantee the best possible protection against current threats.

Once a year, manufacturers of antivirus products also have the opportunity to set themselves apart from other security products and to become 'knighted' with an AV-TEST Award. However, this requires continuous peak performance in at least one test category and throughout the test period of an entire year. 

The AV-TEST Awards – a year of peak performance

In the daily fight against cyber attacks, an antivirus software manufacturer wages battle on many fronts. Thus, it is not only a question of ensuring that a product can match up against international competition, it is also about implementing a service-minded security promise made to the customer when the product is purchased. Only the most innovative research and development achievements can lead to consistent peak performance, which the AV-TEST Institute regularly puts to the test in its monthly side-by-side tests. With "SAFE“ and "PSB Computer Protection", F-Secure put two top contenders into the lineup in 2018 which were able to meet the high standards of the AV-TEST Institute. 

The F-Secure consumer product, "SAFE", receives the accolade of Best Protection 2018 for its outstanding protection on Windows systems.

Thanks to its excellent protection, the corporate product "PSB Computer Protection" stood out as well in the annual test, thus also earning the Best Protection 2018 Award. 



Maik Morgenstern, CTO AV-TEST GmbH: Throughout the entire year of 2018, F-Secure's "Safe" and "PSB Computer Protection" products demonstrated the highest level of security performance, which AV-TEST recognized with the "Best Protection 2018" Award.
