Protectstar™ again receives AV-TEST certification for Antivirus AI for Android

July 02, 2024
Protectstar™ is pleased to announce that the latest version, 2.0 of Antivirus AI for Android, has received the prestigious AV-TEST certification. This award confirms the outstanding performance and reliability of Protectstar™'s security solution in protecting against malware and digital threats.

Many improvements from version 1.5 to 2.0
In December 2023, Antivirus AI Android version 1.5 was awarded the AV-TEST certificate for its high detection rate and reliability. With version 2.0, further significant improvements have been implemented:

  • Detection rate: While version 1.5 achieved an impressive detection rate of 99.5% for widespread Android malware, version 2.0 increased this rate to 99.9%.
  • Reduced false positives: Although false positives were reduced from five to three, this resulted in a point deduction in the overall result due to the strict AV-TEST guidelines.
  • Performance optimization: The new version offers improved system performance, minimizing the impact on device performance.
  • Advanced protection features: New features such as real-time protection and advanced threat detection through artificial intelligence and dual-engine technology have been implemented.

Version 2.0 of Antivirus AI Android was extensively tested by AV-TEST and achieved excellent results in all categories:

  • Protection: 99.9% detection rate for current Android malware.
  • Usability: Minimal impact on system performance and reduced false positives.
  • Performance: Excellent performance with no noticeable slowdown of the device. Compared to other manufacturers, Antivirus AI by Protectstar™ shows optimized performance, especially when loading websites, watching videos, and reading PDF documents.
