AV-Comparatives Awards Panda Security with Gold for 2017 Performance

Today, Wednesday February 7, the independent laboratory AV-Comparatives celebrated the annual Awards Ceremony for manufacturers of IT security solutions that have undergone their rigorous tests over the course of the year. In 2017, Panda Security achieved the highest level of protection in the Real-World Protection Test, leading to the accomplishment of taking home the gold for the Security Awards of the same year.

Real-World Protection Test, the most demanding assessment 

In 2017, the independent laboratory AV-Comparatives submitted 21 computer security products for Windows to a rigorous investigation. All programs were tested for their ability to protect against real-world threats, identify thousands of recent malicious programs, provide protection without slowing down the PC, and remove malware that has already infected a device.

“AV-Comparatives’ Real-World Protection Test is one of the most challenging antivirus software tests there is. It simulates a typical user browsing the Internet. [It] is unique in the fact that it runs fully automatically, meaning no other testing lab can test against the same huge number of threats. Logging, screen video recording and sandboxing are all completely automated,” according to Andreas Clementi, founder and CEO of AV-Comparatives.

In order to distinguish products that achieve outstanding scores in the tests, the laboratory holds an annual awards ceremony. Panda has been recognized, among other things, for its ease of installation and use, a value which is further cemented by the excellent results obtained in the last 12 months.

The acknowledgments Panda Security received  in 2017 are the following :

“Real World Protection 2017 Gold Award” and “Approved Security Product” for its Panda Free Antivirus solution focused for homeusers and  for Adaptive Defense 360, the advanced cybersecurity solution for companies, respectively.

Initially focused on the creation of antivirus software, the company has expanded its line of business towards advanced cybersecurity services with technologies for the prevention of cybercrime.

With protection solutions and systems management and control tools, Panda Security will direct its actions both in the corporate market for companies and for domestic users. Its products are available in more than 23 languages for its more than 30 million users in 190 countries around the world.

AVG Named One of 2016’s Coolest Cloud Security Vendors

It has been a cold month for all the right reasons this January as AVG has just been named one of CRN’s Coolest Cloud Security Vendors for 2016. This is the second consecutive time AVG has made the list, and it’s validation of our hard work over the last twelve months. We’ve been busy and – more importantly – focused on providing even more value for our AVG Business partners and their SMB clients in 2016.

In CRN’s recent recognition, the IT channel publication noted our cloud security and remote monitoring and management (RMM) capabilities for businesses. We continue to see AVG partners transition to solutions such as AVG CloudCare and AVG Managed Workplace as security becomes a higher priority for small business owners and their IT staff.  When you couple this with our advanced Business Edition security products, it’s easy to see the value in our AVG Business solutions.

Earning the recognition as a ‘cool cloud security vendor’ also reflects our commitment to ensuring cloud solutions like AVG CloudCare are easy to implement and manage, simplifying the experience for partners and their SMB end-users.

AVG CloudCare is a single cloud platform that enables the real-time management of a full suite of cloud-based security services including antivirus, online backup (OLB), and a number of other key features.

If you’re not sufficiently impressed by our ‘cool’ credentials already, here are a few more top reasons why you should consider investigating AVG CloudCare for yourself:

  • Ease of Use – AVG CloudCare’s online dashboard is well designed and easy to use for managing desktops, laptops and servers all at a glance.
  • Remote Deployment – As long as one device is on the network, AVG CloudCare can be deployed to any computer attached to the network from the web console.
  • Remote Updates and Scans – AVG CloudCare administrators can force definition updates and scans remotely.
  • Dashboards and Reporting – AVG CloudCare administrators can view all managed devices through an online dashboard showing their status.
  • Content Filtering – As an add-on, content filtering can protect your client’s business from malicious websites and increase productivity by disallowing certain groups of sites.

This recognition is also a true testament of the continued support from our partner and SMB community. As we head into 2016, we remain committed to helping solve today’s business security challenges and helping businesses be productive and successful.

Thank you for your support!

AVG Managed Workplace wins CRN Tech Innovator Award

Since joining AVG Business, the team and I have been focused around the clock on the products, services, and sales & marketing strategies that will drive success for our partners in 2016. While we still have work to do as we head into next year, I’m taking a few minutes today to congratulate our team and partner community on a recent product award from CRN.

Just two months out in the market and AVG Managed Workplace 9.2, our remote monitoring and management (RMM) platform with premium remote control, is the winner of the CRN Tech Innovator Award for Managed Services.

The platform is our best remote monitoring and management (RMM) solution to date. With premium remote control integrated directly at no extra cost, we have made it easier than ever for our partners to provide remote IT management services to their business customers. Our development process, as always, was heavily influenced by the input of our partners from across the globe.

Winning product recognition like this is a true testament of our partners’ support and their feedback helps us keep innovating and responding to the market needs.

Don’t just take it from me. We have many partners that are already using AVG Managed Workplace 9.2 to protect, secure and manage their clients’ networks and systems, and have great things to say.

Here is a quick look at the feedback:

“The new remote control feature is fabulous and we use it continuously. Almost instantly at the time we get a help desk call, we are remoting back into that desktop. We have a 12 minute SLA for an initial communication. To be able to get back in and have the engineer fixing the problem that quickly is amazing. Exceptional, responsive customer service is a top priority for Mirazon. AVG Managed Workplace is the product that allows us to do that. It gives us the critical information and details we need to resolve problems quickly and keep our customers very happy.”
– Karen Albers, Partner, Mirazon

 

”Without a doubt, AVG Managed Workplace’s reporting features are what enable us to close more business deals with healthcare providers. The Inventory Control, Content Filtering, and Network Health reports in particular are invaluable and what our clients want to see day-in and day-out. Plus, the remote control features allow our Support Engineers to proactively work on machines in the background and fix issues while physicians are still treating patients.”
– Shawn Miller, President and CEO, ConXit Healthcare Technology Group Inc

 

“We recently previewed AVG Managed Workplace 9.2 and immediately noticed the advantages of the remote control features, the faster speed and the added tools. We are looking forward to making this available to our IT support teams as soon as possible to deliver excellent customer support.”
– Luis Flores, Help Desk Analyst, Tecnet Canada

 

“We’re very pleased with the new release of AVG Managed Workplace and specifically with the improvements with Patch Management and Maintenance releases. Now we’re able to automate more tasks, more easily and provide proactive services to end customers.”
— Elias Grim, Director of Support, Alura Business Solutions

 

As businesses continue to struggle with security and protection, we will continually strive to provide superior products and services that help our customers successfully and securely compete in today’s rapidly changing environment. This latest award from CRN is further recognition that our strategy is paying off. Thank you for your support!
