Woburn, MA – February 1, 2017 –Kaspersky Lab has received a series of “best in class” awards from independent IT security institute, AV-TEST, for its corporate and consumer solutions. These endorsements are testament to Kaspersky Lab’s unique HuMachine approach to counter cybersecurity threats, which combines the work of humans and machine learning for innovative automated malware detection systems. Kaspersky Lab has now received a total of 100 awards from AV-TEST, making it the first company to ever receive this recognition.

AV-TEST accolades have been awarded to:

  • Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business, for Best Protection and Best Usability
  • Kaspersky Small Office Security, for Best Protection, Best Performance and Best Usability
  • Kaspersky Internet Security, for Best Performance and Best Usability
  • Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool, for Best Repair with Cleaning Tool

The comparative tests, which were conducted during 2016, assess products in four categories – protection, performance, usability and repair. Complex test procedures are designed to test every aspect of protection systems in a variety of ways, including simulating attack scenarios such as zero-day malware attacks and the influence of the security software on the usability of the entire system.

“Kaspersky Lab’s technological leadership stems from a combination of the knowledge of our experts and the effectiveness of our machine learning algorithms,” said Timur Biyachuev, Director, Anti-Malware Research at Kaspersky Lab. “Independent labs like AV-TEST consistently rank Kaspersky Lab products as best-in-class because of that. Deep knowledge of the threat landscape helps us to develop unique machine learning algorithms that protect against new previously unknown attacks, based on broader indicators of malicious intent and behaviour.”
