Kaspersky Lab Wins AV-Test Innovation Award for Securing Online Financial Transactions
Woburn, MA – September 5, 2013 - Kaspersky Lab today announces
that it has received the 2013 AV-Test
Innovation Award for securing online financial transactions.
The experts at AV-Test were unanimous in recognizing
the overall effectiveness of Kaspersky Lab’s ability to protect financial
transactions performed online. The award is primarily due to Kaspersky Lab’s Safe Money
technology, a feature available in Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky PURE.
Kaspersky Lab and Kaspersky
Internet Security in particular consistently receive top marks from AV-Test. The
most recent results were published in August, following a six-month period of testing in which Kaspersky
Internet Security was recognized as one of three security solutions (out of a
total of 24) capable of providing the highest level of protection and usability.
In the same month, Kaspersky Internet Security demonstrated excellent results
in a separate assessment by AV-Test, blocking 100% of attacks that exploited
vulnerabilities in legitimate software.
AV-Test is not the only
organization to recognize the quality of Kaspersky Lab products: they regularly
receive top awards from reputable organizations such as MRG Effitas,
AV-Comparatives, Dennis Technology Labs, and others.
Quote: Andreas Marx, CEO AV-Test, GmbH “The security products produced by Kaspersky Lab have
been standing out due to rapid and continuous improvements in their level of
protection for many years. Their products have proved to be particularly
effective against banking Trojans, such as Zeus, SpyEye and Carberp.Kaspersky Lab was therefore recently
presented with the AV-TEST INNOVATION AWARD 2013 in the category of Secure
Online Transactions in recognition of its pioneering role in the pursuit of and
battle against online criminals.”
