What a great year for Avira Antivirus


A new VB100 Award from Virus Bulletin

Avira AntiVir Personal and Avira AntiVir Professional have successfully obtained a new VB100 Award from Virus Bulletin contributing to an uninterrupted row of successes for both our paid and free solutions. The Avira Free Antivirus was complimented for being fast and reliable, offering great detection to its users. All of these features helped our free antivirus edition maintain an excellent record of passes with 0 fails registered by the Virus Bulletin testing. Our Professional Security Antivirus was also praised on its good scanning speeds, very little lag time and low resource consumption. One thing is for sure, we can all be proud of an impeccable track record.

Avira Antivirus for Android, another great score from AV-TEST

In 2014, our free Avira Antivirus for Android has also earned an awesome rating in the test conducted by the AV-TEST security institute. It was the fifth time in a row. This success was guaranteed by an amazing detection rate on the Android malware test set, not missing a single malicious app. Zero false positives and no hiccups in any of the benchmarks also granted us another perfect score of 6 out of 6 possible points for usability. Other product features like Anti-Theft and call blocking brought us some points as well.

Enhanced real-world protection according to AV-Comparatives

All throughout the year, we were also proud to announce outstanding scores received by our antivirus in AV-Comparatives tests (March-June, August, September, October). Check out the results from all of these dynamic tests.

We’re working really hard on getting excellent results also next year in all upcoming tests. We consider it part of our duty, as one of the pioneers for the most important innovations in the Antivirus industry.
