Bitdefender Wins AV-TEST Best Repair Award
BUCHAREST, ROMANIA, Jan 30, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Bitdefender, creator of the world's best antivirus software, won the
Best Repair title from German security institute AV-TEST, clinching
an award from the second of two major independent testing
organizations in the first weeks of 2013.
The award, which reflects Bitdefender's expertise in fighting malware
infections already on a victim's computer, follows the awarding of
the Product of the Year title to Bitdefender two weeks ago by the
other major analysis firm, AV-Comparatives.
The Best Repair 2012 statuette by AV-TEST honors Bitdefender Internet
Security's effectiveness in detecting, repairing and cleaning malware
from an infected system. A main factor the security institute
examined was the ability to detect hidden rootkits and remove malware
that also alters the system.
"In some of our most exhaustive testing ever, Bitdefender proved to
be the reigning antidote to infection," said AV-TEST CEO Andreas
Marx. "The company has done great things with its repair
technologies. When your computer is infected, Bitdefender is the one
to go to."
In December of last year, Bitdefender also made a debut in AV-TEST
trials with its 2013 security suites. Bitdefender Internet Security
2013 won the top place in the German institute's testing, scoring 17
out of 18 possible points.
"Here in the Bitdefender Labs, we're always looking out to develop
daredevil technologies -- the potentially disruptive innovations that
keep us at the top of our industry," said Viorel Canja, head of
Bitdefender Labs. "This creative approach, and our emphasis on going
the extra mile, has served us very well in recent years. So we're
always pleased to hear of new awards, especially when they come from
one of the most respected testing organizations in the industry."
Bitdefender is the creator of one of the world's fastest and most
effective lines of internationally certified internet security
software. The company is an industry pioneer, introducing and
developing award-winning protection since 2001. Today, Bitdefender
technology secures the digital experience of around 400 million home
and corporate users across the globe.
Recently, Bitdefender won a series of important awards and accolades
in the global security industry, including "Product of the Year" by
AV-Comparatives, "Best Repair 2012" by AV-Test, and "Editor's Choice"
by PC Mag, that confirmed the antivirus software's leadership status
among security products. More information about Bitdefender's
products is available from the company's security pressroom.
Additionally, Bitdefender publishes the HOTforSecurity blog, where
readers can find stories from the underworld of Internet fraud,
scams, malicious software -- and gossip.
