AV-Comparatives Awards 2021 for K7

K7 participated successfully in AV-Comparatives’ Enterprise and Consumer Main Test Series of 2021. The tests covered different protection scenarios, system performance, and false positives.

K7 Total Security is a paid-for security program. In addition to anti-malware features, it includes a parental control feature, with a blacklist/whitelist web filter and Internet time restrictions. There is also an anti-spam feature, a replacement firewall, tune-up function, device control, and secure delete feature.

K7 Cloud Endpoint Security Advanced provides a cloud-based console for managing the endpoint protection software. The product is designed for enterprises of all sizes. We feel it is particularly suitable for smaller businesses and less-experienced administrators.

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.

AV-Comparatives is an independent testing lab based in Innsbruck, Austria, that tests IT security products to see if they live up to their promises. AV-Comparatives is ISO 9001:2015 certified, having received a certificate from TÜV Austria for the scope “Independent Tests of Anti-Virus Software”.
