Earlier this month, Bitdefender’s flagship enterprise security solution, Bitdefender Endpoint Security won another big title - the Best Performance 2016 Award for corporate users from independent organization AV-TEST.
The award recognized the “superb performance” and “remarkable results” of Bitdefender Endpoint Security in six exhaustive rounds of testing throughout 2016. The corporate user solution has now won AV-TEST’s Best Performance Award for three straight years.
"The fact that you don't need to trade good protection for speed in the protected systems was impressively demonstrated by Bitdefender's Endpoint Security solution in our annual year-long tests,"Guido Habicht, the CEO of AV-TEST, said in announcing the awards.
Tallying the results of all testing through 2015 and 2016, combined, Bitdefender’s excellent mix of protection, performance and usability also shone through, achieving the highest cumulative results. The tests verified Bitdefender Endpoint Security’s effectiveness in fighting malware, including newly discovered and zero-day threats, while outperforming the industry by minimizing influence on the speed of the protected systems. Repeated testing showed Bitdefender’s solution allows users to copy files, download and install applications, and launch websites and standard software applications faster than other solutions for corporate users.
According to AV-TEST, during six tests conducted over the year 2016, Bitdefender Endpoint Security not only showed excellent test results in terms of protection but achieved superb performance scores. While managing daily routines, the test systems were not slowed down by Endpoint Security, and the product was able to achieve remarkable results also in the test categories of performance and usability, the testing company noted.
