McAfee earns a Top Product Award from AV-Test!

By on May 28, 2018

McAfee achieved a near perfect score of 17.5 for both McAfee Internet Security (MIS) 20.8, and McAfee Endpoint Security (ENS) 10.5.3, in the areas of protection, performance and usability in the latest round of testing from AV-Test. The AV-TEST Institute, a leading international and independent service provider in the fields of IT security and anti-virus research also honored both products with a Top Product Award.

These results, announced May 28, continue to build on improvements earned over the last several test cycles.  In the latest tests, both MIS and ENS achieved a perfect score of 6 out of 6 in both usability and protection and a near perfect score of 5.5 out of 6 in performance.

Our latest Endpoint Security solutions continue to be market-leading solutions, surpassing other consumer and enterprise platform security vendors in independent scoring around Protection, Performance and Usability.  In fact, both McAfee ENS and MIS was 100% effective against prevalent malware circulating in the past 4 weeks and was virtually 100% effective against 0-day malware attacks as well (a single miss). Both products had ZERO false positives which means you can trust the results you receive from our products. McAfee ENS and MIS also showed virtually no signs of impacting user productivity.
