AV-Comparatives Awards 2020 for Trend Micro
Trend Micro products performed creditably in AV-Comparatives’ 2020 tests of consumer security programs, resulting in a number of awards. The tests covered a variety of protection scenarios, system performance, and false positives, as well as a few different platforms.
AV-Comparatives’ tests are very carefully designed and executed to thoroughly and realistically simulate scenarios that face users in real life. Consequently, a certification by AV-Comparatives is a guarantee of an effective and reliable product. An “Approved Product” award means that the software has been rigorously checked to ensure that it will perform its intended task competently. It is an industry-recognised standard of quality.
AV-Comparatives’ tests have multiple aspects, to represent the different requirements of IT security solutions. Further awards highlight the effectiveness of individual programs in different protection scenarios, low false positives, and low impact on system performance. Users can thus see which programs score highly in the categories that matter most to them.
