Dubai, UAE: ESET, a global leader in cybersecurity, has been commended with Top Product awards in the latest AV-TEST Product Review and Certification reports in both the business and home consumer categories. ESET Endpoint Security 7.3 and ESET Internet Security 13.2 – ESET  security products for Windows in the business and consumer lineups, respectively – achieved Top Product awards with perfect Protection and Usability scores in the August and October 2020 tests.

AV-TEST, a leading independent testing organization, uses one of the largest collections of malware samples in the world to create a real-world environment for highly accurate in-house testing and realistic test scenarios. 

The tests evaluated the best Windows antivirus software for both home and business users, with all vendors being assessed across three main categories: Protection, Performance and Usability. In both the consumer and business evaluations, ESET’s solutions scored a perfect 6 in the Protection category, which measures the protection against malware such as viruses, worms and Trojan horses, and a perfect 6 in the Usability category, which measures the impact of the security software on the usability of the computer. Both solutions also scored near-perfect scores of 5.5 in the Performance category, which measures the impact of the product on computer speed in daily usage.

In addition to the excellent results, this past summer ESET received its 100th AV-Test certificate – this milestone marks ten years since ESET achieved its first certificate from AV-Test in June 2010.

Roman Kováč, Chief Research Officer at ESET, commented, “It is extremely encouraging not only to continue to receive commendations for our home and business security solutions, but also to be recognized for ten years of consistent and outstanding results in third-party testing. At ESET, we are extremely proud of our work in making technology safer. This recognition from AV-Test reaffirms that our solutions are proven to work in real-world scenarios. Businesses and home users can be confident that they are in safe hands with ESET.
