AV-Comparatives is not the only independent antivirus testing organization to acknowledge the efficiency of Bitdefender products. German institute AV-TEST has awarded Bitdefender’s Internet Security with the Best Repair 2012 title in the home-user products category.
AV-TEST praises the ability of Bitdefender solutions to efficiently detect, repair and clean malware from an infected system, particularly when it comes to identifying hidden rootkits and removing malicious elements that cause damage to an infected computer.
“In some of our most exhaustive testing ever, Bitdefender proved to be the reigning antidote to infection. The company has done great things with its repair technologies. When your computer is infected, Bitdefender is the one to go to,” explained Andreas Marx, the CEO of AV-TEST.
“Here in the Bitdefender Labs, we’re always looking out to develop daredevil technologies – the potentially disruptive innovations that keep us at the top of our industry,” said Viorel Canja, head of Bitdefender Labs.
He added, “This creative approach, and our emphasis on going the extra mile, has served us very well in recent years. So we're always pleased to hear of new awards, especially when they come from one of the most respected testing organizations in the industry.”
F-Secure, Symantec and Kaspersky are also winners of the AV-TEST AWARD for 2012. F-Secure Internet Security was named the best in terms of protection, while Symantec Norton Internet Security received the award for best usability.
When it comes to corporate products, Kaspersky’s Endpoint Security won both “best protection” and the “best repair” titles. Symantec Endpoint Protection has been awarded for “best usability” in the corporate products category.
