Bitdefender Antivirus is on a roll, after winning the ‘Best Security Award‘ from AV-Test, it has been awarded the ‘Product of The Year‘ title by AV-Comparative. The independent Austria based testing lab rigorously examines all popular antivirus and security suits throughout the year. There are several tests like Real-World Protection, File Detection, Proactive Detection, False Positive Detection, Anti-Phishing Protection, Malware Removal and Overall Protection test. There is also one in-depth user interface review section. At the end of every year they publish a summary report of all tested security software. Bitdefender performed exceptionally well in all tests and won the ‘Product of The Year 2012′ title. Bitdefender became winner by beating many popular antivirus products like Kaspersky, AVG, ESET, Avast, F-Secure etc.
This year’s competition was not so easy, Bitdefender and Kaspersky scored similar points in AV-Comparative tests. In case of a tie, the ‘Product of the Year’ award is given to the product which has not won this award previously. As Kaspersky has won this award in earlier years, this time Bitdefender received this title. Both Bitdefender and Kaspersky security products are equally good but in Real-World-Protection test Bitdefender has a slight advantage over Kaspersky products. Kaspersky has been awarded as ‘Top Rated Products 2012′ along with Avast, AVIRA, BullGuard, ESET, F-Secure, G DATA. You can read the complete test report of AV-Comparative here.
