AV-Test, an independent research company, has collated the results of its 2014 tests and given Kaspersky Internet Security the Best Performance Award for its minimal impact on system performance.

Throughout the past year, AV-Test experts regularly tested the impact of security products on computer performance. In all the assessments of products for home users, Kaspersky Internet Security proved its superiority. With the solution running and Kaspersky Internet Security’s reliable protection in place, researchers did not encounter any decrease in PC performance when opening web pages, downloading applications from the Internet, copying data or installing software.

With a new version of Kaspersky Internet Security released in summer 2014, both versions were tested during the year and were found to perform equally well. The AV-Test experts also noted the solution’s high scores in the Protection and Usability category tests.

“Kaspersky Lab Internet Security is an absolutely reliable product that consistently met our high test requirements throughout the entire year of 2014,” commented Andreas Marx, CEO AV-Test GmbH.

“In a constantly changing threat landscape, Kaspersky Lab keeps the ‘combat-readiness’ of its solutions at a high level. Most importantly, this is achieved by improving protection technologies rather than increasing the load on the computer’s resources,” said Timur Biyachuev, Director of Anti-Malware research, Kaspersky Lab.

Kaspersky Internet Security was not the only Kaspersky Lab product to be recognized by AV-Test on the basis of tests carried out during 2014. In August 2014, the Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool was named winner of the Best Repair 2014 category for its effectiveness in cleaning up infected systems. Kaspersky Lab is the only company to win awards in two different AV-Test Award categories in 2014.
