Bitdefender Wins Six Awards from AV-TEST

Founded in 2001 in Romania, Bitdefender, a global cybersecurity leader, earned six prestigious awards, including two for Best Protection for Windows (enterprise), Best Performance for Windows (enterprise), Best Protection for Windows (consumer), Best MacOS Security (consumer), and Best Android Security (consumer) from AV-TEST, an industry-recognized independent IT security testing institution.

Bitdefender solutions were rigorously tested using real-world scenarios over a year and consistently excelled in the evaluation criteria of threat protection, product performance, usability and more.

This year marks a historic milestone of two decades of rigorously testing Bitdefender solutions. Our testing is conducted over twelve months, and evaluations examine product efficacy against both advanced and common malware attacks in Windows, MacOS, and Android environments. Each year, Bitdefender has demonstrated its excellence in preventing, detecting and stopping threats in both enterprise and consumer environments, solidifying its position as a leader in the cybersecurity industry.

Maik Morgenstern, CEO of AV-TEST

For enterprise solutions, Bitdefender GravityZone Platform earned two Best Protection and one Best Performance for Windows. Bitdefender GravityZone is a unified security and risk analytics platform that provides advanced endpoint protection, including endpoint detection and response (EDR), extended detection and response (XDR) and security across physical, virtual, and multi-cloud environments. The defence-in-depth architecture integrates security insight and control in a unified management console to centrally monitor and manage cybersecurity risk posture and allow security teams to investigate and remediate incidents quickly.

For consumer solutions, Bitdefender Internet Security earned Best Protection for Windows, Bitdefender Antivirus for Mac won Best MacOS Security, and Bitdefender Mobile Security for Android earned AV-TEST’s Best Android Security. Throughout testing, all three solutions successfully proved to identify and stop threats such as zero-day malware, ransomware, macOS malware and mobile malware before consumer devices were compromised.

As the attack surface grows and malware improves to evade detection, the importance of solid threat prevention, detection and response across home, enterprise, and cloud environments cannot be overstated. In the face of evolving cybersecurity challenges, our commitment to engineering innovation, advanced threat intelligence, and prioritizing product usability remains steadfast. Achieving six ‘Best’ awards from AV-TEST in a single year (a company record) is a testament to our unyielding dedication to delivering effective security solutions that meet the diverse needs of thousands of businesses and millions of consumers we are trusted to safeguard daily.
