The ability of Kaspersky Lab products to protect and secure online financial transactions has earned an AV-Test Innovation Award. The award was given based on Kaspersky Lab’s Safe Money technology, which is found in Kaspersky Internet Security and in Kaspersky PURE and is slated to be released next as a standalone product available to banks.
“The security products produced by Kaspersky Lab have been standing out due to rapid and continuous improvements in their level of protection for many years,” said Andreas Marx, CEO of AV-TEST. “Their products have proved to be particularly effective against banking Trojans, such as Zeus, SpyEye and Carberp. Kaspersky Lab was therefore recently presented with the AV-Test Innovation Award 2013 in the category of Secure Online Transactions in recognition of its pioneering role in the pursuit of and battle against online criminals.”
This is just the most recent recognition of the success of Kaspersky Lab’s Safe Money Technology. Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 recently earned an MRG Online Banking Browser Security Certification after performing flawlessly during rigorous testing against the latest financial malware during the second quarter of 2013. And KIS was also recognized by AV-Test earlier this year for being one of just three security solutions that of provided the highest level of protection and usability during six months of testing. And Kaspersky Lab products have earned other top awards in comparative tests from other independent groups including AV-Comparatives and Dennis Technology Labs.
