McAfee Wins Product of the Year for Best Online Protection

You can feel even more confident that you’ll enjoy life online with us at your side. AV-Comparatives has awarded McAfee as its 2021 Product of the Year.

McAfee makes staying safe simple, and now this endorsement by an independent lab says we protect you best.

Over the course of 2021, AV-Comparatives subjected 17 different online protection products to a series of rigorous tests. Their labs investigated each product’s ability to protect against real-world Internet threats, such as thousands of emerging malicious programs and advanced targeted attacks, along with the ability to provide protection without slowing down the computer.

McAfee topped the field, taking home the award for AV-Comparatives’ Product of the Year thanks to our highest overall scores across the seven different testing periods throughout the year. McAfee further took a Gold Award for the Malware Protection Test, in addition to recognition for its clean, modern, and touch-friendly design and for the way that McAfee Firewall coordinates perfectly with Windows.

“We’re honored by the recognition,” says Chief Technology Officer, Steve Grobman. “The strong reputation that AV-Comparatives carries in the industry cements our place as a leader in online protection.” He goes on to say, “Our work continues. The internet is evolving to be integral to every part of our lives. This creates new opportunities for cybercriminals and drives the evolution of the threat landscape. McAfee is committed to staying one step ahead of these sophisticated threats, ensuring customers can safely utilize the full value of our online world.”
