In 2012 Kaspersky Lab’s consumer solutions – Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 followed by Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 – delivered consistently impressive results in AV-Comparatives testing. In Whole Product Dynamic Testing, one of the most challenging tests designed to check the system for protection against real-world threats, Kaspersky Lab products twice received the highest ADVANCED+ award. Out of nine possible ADVANCED+ awards in 2012, Kaspersky Lab won a total of eight.
This consistent success prompted AV-Comparatives experts to award Kaspersky Lab the title of Top Rated 2012. This acclaim comes principally from the results of the protection technology testing – this prestigious prize could not be awarded to any product which didn’t return a 100% record in Real World tests.

As a result, Kaspersky Lab solutions finished equal first in the overall rating along with a Bitdefender product, and made a strong claim for the title of Product of the Year 2012. According to AV-Comparatives, “both Kaspersky Lab’s and Bitdefender’s products were equally good, and both worthy of the Product of the Year award”.
