Comparative Tests: AV-Comparatives Products of the Year

By averaging Q4 test results with similar comparative anti-virus product evaluations conducted throughout 2009, AV-Comparatives issued its Best Product of 2009 rankings in its annual summary report.  Kaspersky Lab earned the Silver award for 2009 based largely on the strength of its real-world malware detection and overall performance.  AV-Comparatives typically awards only a single “best product” designation, but was compelled to offer a Silver ranking due to the extremely close final results.
