Bitdefender Leads in AV-Comparatives Business Security Test

August 2018

BUCHAREST, Romania / Sana Clara, Calif. – August 8, 2018 — Bitdefender, a leading global cybersecurity technology company protecting over 500 million users worldwide, today announced the results of the AV-Comparatives Business Security Test. The round of tests was conducted in March, April, May and June, and included the Business Malware Protection Test (March), Business Real-World Protection Test (March-June), and the Business Performance Test (June).

Bitdefender’s GravityZone Elite Security HD achieved perfect detection rates against 1,163 test cases in a simulated real-life attack scenario, reaffirming the product’s ability to stop a diverse array of threats, from file-based and fileless attacks to online threats and exploitation attempts.

In addition to the perfect score obtained in the Real-World Protection and Malware Protection tests, Bitdefender also received accolades for the products’s management console, especially its “clarity and clear thinking of the design,” as well as for the coherent and comprehensive manner of implementing policies and endpoint management.

 “Modern malware is not only increasing in numbers, but also moves away from traditional delivery avenues to more sophisticated and difficult-to-combat infection vectors such as exploit-based delivery, lateral movement and macro or macro-less payloads,” said Harish Agastya, VP, Enterprise Solutions at Bitdefender. “This round of tests shows once again that our approach to cyber-security is the perfect answer to the challenges businesses face on a daily basis.”

“Our tests are designed to pit security solutions against the same challenges they will encounter in real-world usage. We are happy to see Bitdefender’s technologies mastering all our test cases, and are delighted to certify them with the AV-Comparatives Approved Business Product Award for the test series conducted between March and June 2018,” said  Andreas Clementi, Founder/CEO of AV-Comparatives.
