Independent Security Research Leader AV-TEST recently put our AVG Business solutions to the test.  The result was a Top Product award that AVG channel partners can share with their clients.

 

At AVG, we never miss an opportunity to promote the detection and protection capabilities of our business security software. It’s even better when independent experts are also communicating the power behind our security engine. Our recent AV-TEST scores are a great example.

Our AVG Business solutions were recently awarded a Top Product score by AV-TEST in its May-June 2016 evaluation of 13 business endpoint protection software products. AVG was one of only 4 of 12 security vendors to receive this product score.

In this AV-TEST evaluation, our security technology was put through realistic test scenarios and challenged against real-world threats. We are also proud to share that this is our second consecutive high rating by AV-TEST this year.

AV-TEST, an international, independent leader in IT security and antivirus research, uses comprehensive comparative analysis methods to detect and analyze new malware.  In its analysis process, AV-TEST engineers evaluate security solutions for reliable malware detection and low false positive rates.

Here is a brief look at our results:

  • Our AVG Business products scored 100% for real-world detection with no false positives across protection, performance and usability categories, achieving 17.5 out of a total score of 18, across these categories:
    • Protection 6/6: This focuses on protection against malware infections (viruses, worms or Trojan horses)
    • Performance 5/6: This focuses on the average influence of the product on computer speed in daily usage.
    • Usability 6/6: This focuses on the impact of the security software on the usability of the whole computer

AV-TEST CEO Andreas Marx also shared his feedback on our test results. “With the market’s leading business security software solutions promoting similar features and capabilities, independent test results like ours help the decision-making process for both the IT channel and business customers. AVG’s business products have performed consistently strong in our recent tests this year and this is important for channel providers making product portfolio decisions and managing security for their business clients,” said Marx.

Our consistent product performance is a testament to our 100% focus on SMB security. We continue to be committed to helping channel partners build their businesses and put the best security defense in place for their clients’ IT environments.

Please share these results with your teams and client base. You can find more information about our AVG Business solutions at http://www.avg.com/partners. Thank you for your continued support.
