These impressive achievements have been recognized by the industry, and Bitdefender has won numerous awards over the years. In 2019, the company was named “Best Consumer Security” by the prestigious AV-Test Institute, and it was also awarded five out of five stars for its “outstanding” performance in AV-Comparatives’ real-world protection tests.
Bitdefender’s commitment to excellence has also been recognized by its customers.
