AV-Comparatives Award Best Anti-Virus Product of 2009: Symantec/Norton

The well-known and trustworthy anti-virus test organisation ‘AV-Comparatives’ have announced the winner of the Year 2009: Symantec.
AV-Comparatives is an Austrian Non-Profit-Organization, which is providing independent Anti-Virus software tests free to the public.

The “Product of the Year” Award is given based on all tests done by AV-Comparatives in a particular year, e.g. malware removal test, dynamic test, PUP test, etc., so the yearly Award is an acknowledgement of the anti-virus product with the best overall test results in that year.

Like said, the Winner of 2009 is Symantec. A well-deserved Winner, after all we remember very well the severe struggles with Symantec/Norton anti-virus products in the past, what finally resulted in bloatware products that couldn’t be handled anymore, they were totally out of control and had also huge negative impact on system resources.

Symantec/Norton finally decided to entirely revamp their ant-virus products, we noticed the enormous positive progress in development of their 2009 line products, and the final touch was performed in the 2010 line: Norton AntiVirus 2010, Norton Internet Security 2010 and Norton 360 Version 3.0

I am really pleased that all efforts of Symantec/Norton to improve their products are finally rewarded with AV-Comparatives “Product of the Year 2009 Award”. Well done and really deserved Symantec!
