ESET – a global company in cybersecurity – has been commended with Top Product awards in the latest AV-TEST Product Review and Certification reports in both the business and home consumer categories.

ESET Endpoint Security 7.3 and ESET Internet Security 13.2 – ESET security products for Windows in the business and consumer line-ups, respectively – achieved Top Product awards with perfect protection and usability scores in the August and October 2020 tests.


AV-TEST – an independent testing organisation – uses one of the largest collections of malware samples in the world to create a real-world environment for highly accurate in-house testing and realistic test scenarios.

The tests evaluated the best Windows antivirus software for both home and business users, with all vendors being assessed across three main categories – protection, performance and usability.

In both the consumer and business evaluations, ESET’s solutions scored a perfect 6 in the protection category; this measures the protection against malware such as viruses, worms and Trojan horses. ESET’s solutions also scored a perfect 6 in the usability category, which measures the impact of the security software on the usability of the computer. Additionally, both solutions scored near-perfect scores of 5.5 in the performance category, which measures the impact of the product on computer speed in daily usage.

Roman Kováč, Chief Research Officer at ESET, commented: “It is extremely encouraging not only to continue to receive commendations for our home and business security solutions, but also to be recognised for ten years of consistent and outstanding results in third-party testing.

“At ESET, we are extremely proud of our work in making technology safer. This recognition from AV-Test reaffirms that our solutions are proven to work in real-world scenarios. Businesses and home users can be confident that they are in safe hands with ESET. After a year like no other, it has never been more important for your sensitive information and data to be protected with advanced security software both at work and at home.”
