BUCHAREST, Romania – August 2nd, 2011.

Undergoing assessment for protection, repair and usability, Bitdefender Internet Security 2011 is the only product to receive 17 points from a possible 18. 
Ranked against twenty-one other security products, Bitdefender Internet Security 2011 obtained the maximum possible score for zero-day attacks and overall safety. The product also easily passed the infected computer cleaning and repairing test with 5.5 points, and when assessed for its impact on the usability of the whole computer, Bitdefender finished best in class.
This success follows the AV-TEST Q1 2011 results, which ranked Bitdefender Internet Security 2011 as the joint-best performer across protection, repair and performance categories and the only solution to receive a perfect 100% protection score.  
Viorel Canja, Bitdefender Head of Labs commented:
“It’s a great pleasure to see our technology performing so well across a sustained period of time - especially as we have built on the Q1 tests to achieve a best-ever score. These latest results and our fantastic track record are a great boost for Bitdefender, its business partners and its customers. Our new 2012 range launched last week and uses improved versions of 2011 technology, so we are confident we can continue to build on this success.”

Andreas Marx, CEO of AV-TEST remarked:
“Once again, we see Bitdefender at the top of our testing charts. To have achieved this for two quarters running, and with a record score this quarter, is a real achievement. Our congratulations go out to the team.”
