Why independent testing?

As part of our own benchmarking procedures, F-Secure has for several years been submitting our security products for evaluation and review by independent, internationally renowned product testing organizations.

Independent product testing and comparative reviews are important to us, not only as an impartial validation of the quality and effectiveness of our products, but also as a useful benchmark for our individual product performance and competitiveness, which guides us in continuously improving our product features, detection methodologies and services.

Listed below is the most recent award or certification given to F-Secure products by an independent testing establishment in the last one year.

For a comprehensive list of awards won by F-Secure products over the years, please see our Awards page.
