AV-Comparatives bestows top honor on Bitdefender a second time
Bitdefender, the creator of innovative antivirus software solutions, was awarded Product of the Year by AV-Comparatives for a second time after a year of rigorous independent testing confirmed its world-leading blend of iron-clad protection, ease of use and low system impact.
Bitdefender, which also won the award in 2013, beat out 22 other leading security providers for the top prize, including McAfee, AVG, Avira and others. The company won the top Advanced+ status in all eight categories of testing and became AV-Comparatives' Real World Protection Winner, Proactive Winner, joint Performance Winner and joint Removal Winner.
The Product of the Year award further widens Bitdefender's industry-wide lead in terms of quality, enhancing the momentum gained by the company's strides forward in technology with features such as its self-learning technologies and behavioral defense.
"Throughout a year of intensive investigation, Bitdefender remained true to its reputation for flawless defense and extreme ease of use," said Andreas Clementi, CEO of AV-Comparatives. "Bitdefender has displayed strength, innovation, agility and a keen awareness of the customers' needs and the shifting circumstances of online security for all the years we have been testing the company's products."
"We're delighted to win Product of the Year again by AV-Comparatives," said Bitdefender Chief Security Strategist Catalin Cosoi. "We pour everything we've got into our products and the recognition from experts of this high quality is a reward in itself. At the same time that this award recognizes us as the best, it also raises the bar for our performance in 2015."
