Bitdefender Earns FOUR AV-TEST Best Protection Awards

Independent Testing Confirms Enterprise and Consumer Solutions Stopped 100% of Zero-Day and Widespread Malware

Bitdefender, a global cybersecurity leader, announced they have earned four Best Protection awards from AV-TEST, an independent  testing organization that retains one of the world’s largest collections of malware samples. Bitdefender secured the most awards of all participating cybersecurity companies – many considered market leaders. These accolades further affirm the company’s overwhelming superiority identifying and stopping cybersecurity threats like Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and ransomware, before enterprise and consumer endpoints are compromised.

“Bitdefender has proven its excellence and reliability each year that we’ve tested their solutions,” said AV-TEST CEO Maik Morgenstern. “This year the company shone brighter than ever. With four Awards, Bitdefender shows its supremacy over many other solutions on the market. In the tests for business, as well as for end-user and mobile products, Bitdefender impressed with its outstanding protection.”

AV-TEST awarded Best Protection to Bitdefender GravityZone Advanced Business Security and Bitdefender GravityZone Ultra Plus Security. GravityZone, the company’s endpoint protection, risk management and incident forensics platform, stopped 100% of zero-day malware and 100% of widespread malware discovered in the four weeks prior to each round of testing. With the latest achievements, Bitdefender business solutions have now earned eight Best Protection awards in seven years from AV-TEST.

“The foundation of good cybersecurity and cyber resilience always starts with exceptional threat prevention,” said Dragos Gavrilut, director of cyber threat intelligence at Bitdefender. “We’re honored to take home four Best Protection awards. This accomplishment demonstrates our dedication to deliver the industry’s best threat prevention for millions of consumers and thousands of enterprises to help secure endpoints, personal devices and cloud environments.”

AV-TEST winners are chosen based on rigorous testing of various antivirus and endpoint protection solutions and their ability to block threats in the wild across multiple environments. Products in like categories are tested simultaneously and in identical and repeatable conditions. Testing criteria included recognizing and blocking zero-day malware, drive-by website attacks, downloads from websites, attacks using malware infected email and more.
