ProtectStar Inc Announces This Years’ ProtectStar AWARD Winners From Major Names in Internet Security
an independent, internationally active IT and communications security
specialist, has announced its annual awards after testing major Internet
security suites again this year.
Fourteen major names were put to a thorough series of tests at the
ProtectStar(TM) Test Lab together with AV-Comparatives. The final assessment
focused on security, usability and performance as well as cost-effectiveness
Security played a major role in grading the contenders, with the testers
placing especially high priority on fundamental protection functionality at
Symantec’s Norton Internet Security 2009 held on to last year’s
top-ranking position, the number of improvements on the previous version
along with its excellent performance and security functions taking it to the
top of the crop.
Despite the complexity of the total assessment system, this year saw the
first tie for second place with Avira Premium Security 2009 and Kaspersky
Internet Security 2009 achieving an equal score.
All three products received the ProtectStar(TM) AWARD 2009 – not least
due to the extremely close test results.
Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 also won the ProtectStar(TM) Firewall
AWARD for 2009. The integrated firewall in this security suite was the only
contender to fulfill all of the criteria for this award due to its excellent
protection functionality in external and internal security and its detailed
logs and warning pop-ups.
This year’s security recommendation, ProtectStar Recommendation 2009,
went to Eset Smart Security 3.0, which came in fourth in the test ranking.
