Hopefully you’ve heard by now that the F-Secure Internet Security was named Product of the Year for 2010 by AV-Comparatives—the prestigious Austrian non-profit that provides independent Anti-Virus software tests free to the public.
Here’s Andreas Clementi, CEO of AV-Comparatives, presenting the award to Mika Stahlberg, VP F-Secure Labs.
You might wonder: what does AV-Comparatives look for when naming its product of the year?
“To be rated ‘Product of the Year’ by AV-Comparatives, an anti-virus program must have very high detection rates of malware, high proactive detection, produce very few false positives, scan fast and reliably with low system impact, protect the system against malware/websites with malicious software without relying significantly on user decisions/interactions, cause no crashes or hangs, and have no annoying bugs.”
Basically, the Product of the Year needs to protect you and your PC nearly flawlessly without bothering you. That has always been our goal, and it’s simply awesome to see that AV-Comparatives recognizes that we’re achieving it.
This incredible honor tops off a great 2010 for F-Secure that included seven Advanced+ scores – the highest possible scores in AV-Comparatives’ tests that measure the protection and performance of the major antivirus products on the market. F-Secure Internet Security 2011 also won the Gold Awards for the Whole-Product Dynamic Protection and the lowest rate of false positives overall.
And just last week we found out that F-Secure Internet Security received the highest score AV-Test.org’s latest test of the major AV products running on Windows Vista.
We’ve been humbled by these honors but we will not rest on them. In 2011, we look forward to improving our products even more. Because when it comes to protecting your irreplaceable content, information and relationships, excellence is the only option.
Thank you for your continuing support.
