Microsoft’s offers to users yielded results: Windows 10 installations for corporate users are constantly increasing and have already reached roughly 25 percent worldwide. That’s why the experts at AV-TEST decided to examine 12 corporate solutions for Windows 10.
Normally companies are slow to upgrade to new systems. For Windows 10, however, this trend is moving more quickly than expected. The worldwide share of Windows 10 among all operating systems is already at 25 percent. That is almost four times the market share of Windows 8.1.
Yet even with the new Windows 10, companies cannot rely on the built-in resources when it comes to security. A good client and server security solution is indispensable here. AV-TEST examined 12 security solutions for corporate users in the categories of protection, performance and usability. The tests took place over a two-month period in November and December 2016.
Two products achieve a top rating
The products can score up to 6 points in each test phase. This means a maximum of 18 points can be achieved. If a product reaches 18 or 17.5 points, it is rated a “top product”. The solutions from Bitdefender and Kaspersky Lab (Small Office Security) garnered this special recognition. A total of four products attained excellent results of 17 points: the packages from Symantec, Seqrite, Trend Micro and Kaspersky Lab (Endpoint Security).
All other corporate solutions tested still delivered good results of 14.5 to 16.5 points. This is also the range achieved by the free Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection module.
