Why Kaspersky Lab

For the fifth year in a row, Kaspersky Lab has again retained the top spot in its TOP3 cybersecurity metric, based on independent tests. Kaspersky Lab products outperformed those of all other security vendors in a broad spectrum of independent tests in 2017 – coming first place 72 times out of 86 tests and reviews, and finishing in the top three 91% of the time.

According to the TOP3 metric, Kaspersky Lab is once again the most tested and most awarded security vendor on the market. These results have cemented the company’s position as industry leader, because of its ability to defend users with the best security solutions and provide high-quality protection against known, unknown, and advanced threats.

Kaspersky Lab provides best in the industry protection!



Based on results from independent assessments, from world-renowned testing labs, Kaspersky Lab’s TOP3 metric regularly monitors the performance of both consumer and business products from top security vendors. It does this by keeping track of how the different products on the market fare, when compared to each other in independent reviews. The calculation measures vendors on their ability to score highly in testing – giving each vendor a score based on how many top three places it achieves, compared to the number of tests it took part in.

Only transparent tests make up the TOP3 calculations, meaning the metric remains fair and impartial. The TOP3 measures tests from labs such as AV-Test, SELabs, MRG Effitas, AV-Comparatives and others, all of which are renowned for their testing-excellence and neutrality. Products were tested for their ability to protect against advanced threats, ransomware, exploits, financial malware and more, as well as pick up on false positives with accuracy, on different operating systems.
