Seqrite, the enterprise IT security brand of Quick Heal Technologies Limited, today announced its Endpoint Security (EPS) software received a score of 17.5 out of 18 in AV-TEST’s ratings for “Best Antivirus Software for Windows Client Business Users.” The results of the testing, which occurred during the months of September and October 2016, were recently published by AV-TEST and are now available online.

Beating out industry leaders such as AVG, Symantec and Sophos, Seqrite EPS ranked on par with Kaspersky Lab Endpoint Security 10 and rated in the top four of all enterprise security products tested. The software received a perfect score in the categories of protection and usability and was evaluated along with 12 other enterprise security products and solutions.

“Displaying steady progress throughout 2016 with AV-TEST and other independent testing labs, Seqrite, along with Quick Heal, continues to outpace key global players in combatting today’s ever-escalating malware threats,” said Sanjay Katkar, Managing Director and CTO, Quick Heal Technologies Limited. “This latest round of test results demonstrates our relentless focus and commitment to keeping our installed base of business customers safe and protected.”

AV-TEST is globally recognized for its rigorous and independent testing practices. The organization has been performing IT security and antivirus research for more than 15 years. Located in Germany, the institute frequently releases findings on the latest malware and provides a detailed analysis of products and solutions available to counter these threats.

According to Maik Morgenstern, CTO of AV-TEST GmbH, “The security solutions from Seqrite offer a decisive benefit towards IT security. The superior scores in our tests confirm EPS’s capability to stand up to looming threats, while providing enterprises with peace of mind about their hardware and network’s security, without hindering performance or functionality.”

In October, Quick Heal’s Total Security 17 offering also earned “Top Product” recognition from AV-TEST in the category of “Best Antivirus Software for Windows Home Users.”

These test results come on the heels of a 100 percent real-world protection score received in July from AV-TEST as well as two Advanced+ ratings from AV-Comparatives in the areas of file detection and performance. In addition, recent AVLab protection tests declared that Seqrite EPS Enterprise Suite Edition was 100 percent effective in detecting and blocking malicious ransomware and was given the AVLab BEST+++ Award.
