It’s award season again! With its AV-TEST Awards 2023, the AV-TEST Institute is honoring the vendors of security products for consumer users and corporate users for the thirteenth time. Throughout the year 2023, the renowned institute examined a multitude of products on Windows, MacOS and Android platforms in its labs and awarded its highly coveted test certificates for excellent performance. Only the products that constantly proved their worth by consistently achieving top values throughout all tests are now being presented with one or even several of the sought-after AV-TEST Awards 2023 as a trophy to honor their success. The AV-TEST Institute is looking forward to not only presenting its awards but also celebrating its 20th anniversary. The 2023 Awards in the two test categories of Best Android Security for Consumer Users and Best MacOS Security for Consumer Users go to Trend Micro.

AV-TEST Awards 2023

for Trend Micro


The AV-TEST Award – valuable confirmation of consistent IT security

Vendors, companies and users all expect a test structure that is constantly transparent and understandable, and AV-TEST fulfils every aspect of these expectations. All of the products tested at the AV-TEST Institute are subjected to a clearly defined test structure. The results of the tests are clearly documented, valid and authoritative. In the entire year 2023, the institute examined and evaluated security products at regular intervals in the test areas of Protection, Performance and Usability, using Windows, Mac and Android platforms. As an additional series of tests, the Advanced Threat Protection tests identify the special defensive capabilities of products, for example their ability to fend off ransomware or data stealers, in extremely detailed individual examinations.

All products that meet AV-TEST’s high criteria are awarded a certificate for tested security against IT threats. Products with achievements clearly above the industry standard when tested under Windows are additionally rewarded with the “TOP PRODUCT” label. At the end of 2023, all of the values recorded and labels awarded were combined to determine the winners of the AV-TEST Awards.

2024 is a special year for AV-TEST, marking the company’s 20th anniversary and its thirteenth award ceremony. At this year’s ceremony, 33 strong awards are being presented to 14 different vendors. Over the past twenty years, AV-TEST has conducted thousands of highly professional tests in its laboratories and published an abundance of expert reports. These have, in turn, provided IT security specialists and IT publications with a reliable source of information time and time again. Throughout the twenty years of the AV-TEST Institute to date, many vendors have also used the test certificates and awards presented by the company as evidence of their trustworthy status among retailers, traders and buyers.

AV-TEST Awards for Trend Micro – outstanding IT security

In addition to Windows, MacOS and Android have now become extremely popular targets for attack. This is also very clearly manifest in the AV-TEST statistics portal AV-ATLAS. The special malware registered here for MacOS is currently breaking the million mark. And Android malware is on a clear upward trajectory towards 35 million registered samples – mostly in infected apps. That is why it's a good idea to have strong protection for MacOS and Android. And the best security packages are in the line-up of continuous tests from the AV-TEST labs.

In the evaluations for greater protection of MacOS, the security software from Trend Micro proved itself throughout the entire year of 2023 with outstanding capabilities in terms of protection, performance and usability. For this the Trend Micro product Antivirus received the Best MacOS Security Award for Consumer Users.

In the tests with thousands of apps, partly brand-new and infected with malware, Trend Micro demonstrated how well attackers of Android systems can be fended off. For the outstanding test results and continuous peak achievement in 2023, the security app Trend Micro Mobile Security received the Best Android Security Award for Consumer Users.



"Users of MacOS and Android are on the safe side with the protection products from Trend Micro. This is manifested by the many good test results throughout the year 2023. AV-TEST is particularly pleased, in its 20th anniversary year, to be able to present a total of two awards to Trend Micro. We congratulate Trend Micro on the awards Best Android Security and Best MacOS Security for Consumer Users", says Maik Morgenstern, CEO of AV-TEST.
