Bitdefender was selected among the best!
2015 is over and we can look back at the best security solutions of previous year. One of the best independent test labs, AV-Comparatives at the end of each year releases a summary report to comment on the various anti-virus products tested over the year. AV-Comparatives was founded in 2004 and is based in Innsbruck, Austria. They are an ISO 9001 certified organization. It's not just a big honor to receive awards from AV-Comparatives, but for a lot of vendors they help to find bugs in their software and get better.
In 2015, AV-Comparatives subjected 21 security products for Windows to rigorous investigation. All the programs were tested for their ability to protect against real-world Internet threats, identify thousands of recent malicious programs, and provide protection without slowing down the PC. Additionally, optional tests checked how well the products could remove malware from an infected PC, and block new and unknown threats.
The following vendors participated in AV-Comparatives’ public main test-series of 2015 and agreed to have the effectiveness of their products independently evaluated:
We are happy to announce that Bitdefender again showed great results. Only Bitdefender and Kaspersky lab received the maximum scores in all the main tests. Bitdefender was a Top Rated Product this year, with joint highest scores overall. It only missed Product of the Year because it won the award last year; it received Advanced+ awards in all eight main tests. It wins the Gold Award in Proactive Protection, joint Gold in File Detection, joint Gold in the Real-World Protection Test, and joint Silver in Malware Removal. Its almost instant real-time detection of malware on a flash drive stood out in our user-experience review.
