AV-Comparatives Awards 2023 for Kaspersky

Kaspersky 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.

Installation of Kaspersky Standard is straightforward, with safe default options. The program’s modern, tiled interface makes all essential features easily accessible from the home page. In our functionality check, Kaspersky’s highly sensitive on-access protection proactively deleted malware on a network share as soon as we opened it in Windows File Explorer, the same thing occurred when opening network shares. Advanced users will find a wide range of configuration options in the settings.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business (KESB) Select, with KSC is a tier of Kaspersky’s Endpoint Security for Business product line. It is aimed at medium-sized businesses and larger enterprises. The product provides a choice of either a server-based or a cloud-based console to manage the endpoint protection software.


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.
