AV-Comparatives Awards 2023 for K7

K7 achieved great success in AV-Comparatives’ Enterprise and Consumer Main-Test Series of 2023. The tests covered different protection scenarios, system performance, and false positives.

We found K7 Total Security to be very simple to install and use. The most important functions can easily be accessed from the home page. The default actions for connecting external drives and malware detection are ideal. In our functionality check, K7’s highly sensitive on-access protection detected and removed malware on USB drives and network shares as soon as they were opened in Windows File Explorer. Access control is excellent.

As its name suggests, K7 On-Premises Enterprise Security Advanced provides a server-based console for managing the endpoint protection software. This is accessed via a web browser. The product is designed for enterprises of all sizes. We feel it is particularly suitable for smaller businesses and less-experienced administrators, due to the very simple and easy-to-use console design.

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.
