McAfee Wins Product of the Year for Best Online Protection

You can feel even more confident that you’ll enjoy life online with us at your side. AV-Comparatives has awarded McAfee as its 2021 Product of the Year.

McAfee makes staying safe simple, and now this endorsement by an independent lab says we protect you best.

Over the course of 2021, AV-Comparatives subjected 17 different online protection products to a series of rigorous tests. Their labs investigated each product’s ability to protect against real-world Internet threats, such as thousands of emerging malicious programs and advanced targeted attacks, along with the ability to provide protection without slowing down the computer.

McAfee topped the field, taking home the award for AV-Comparatives’ Product of the Year thanks to our highest overall scores across the seven different testing periods throughout the year. McAfee further took a Gold Award for the Malware Protection Test, in addition to recognition for its clean, modern, and touch-friendly design and for the way that McAfee Firewall coordinates perfectly with Windows.

“We’re honored by the recognition,” says Chief Technology Officer, Steve Grobman. “The strong reputation that AV-Comparatives carries in the industry makes this feel like we won the gold for online protection.” He goes on to say that our work continues, “As the way people use the internet shifts and evolves, so are we, innovating to stay ahead of constantly evolving threats so our customers can enjoy their time online with confidence.”
