Avira wins Virus Bulletin best AV detection award

This represents a streak for Avira wins for best AV detection rates and superior product quality. This latest Virus Bulletin VB100 testing took place from October 2013 to April 2014.

Free, yet fast and reliable

The Avira Free Antivirus was complimented for being fast and user friendly as the Virus Bulletin lab experts concluded “it installs fairly rapidly, and presents a slick and attractive interface which is simple to operate and provides a fairly complete set of controls.”

Recent improvements to the core product were credited with quick scanning speeds, with very light computing overhead. Just like in the previous rounds of testing, “detection was as excellent as ever, and this solid coverage extended to the certification sets.”

All of these features helped our free antivirus maintain an excellent record of passes with 0 fails registered by the Virus Bulletin testing.

Keeping it professional

The strong performance of Avira AV was confirmed by the lab’s review of our Professional Security Antivirus as well: “the interface has the same professional feel and sensible layout, and the installation process is also very speedy and simple.” Just like for our free solution, our detection got a perfect score of 100. The testers also complimented the new fine-tuning options that contributed to good scanning speeds, very little lag time and low resource consumption.

An impeccable track record

Our whole team is super excited about continuing the streak of awards for superior protection and product quality. “It is the fifth consecutive VB100 Award we achieved in the last 12 months and shows that we have sustainable high detection rate with zero false positives in the Virus Bulletin tests” said Philipp Wolf, our Executive Vice President Protection Labs.

We’re proud of these results and are honored to have been recognized with this award.
