AVLab Cybersecurity Foundation

Information about us and our activity

As independent enthusiasts, we uphold privacy and digital security on the Internet.

We provide information about security industry and Internet threats in the form of articles, training reports, conferences, and educational materials. Our greatest strengths are insightful and detailed reviews, preparation of reports related to privacy and protection of endpoints, and in particular security tests, thanks to which we are recognized around the world as one of the most popular testing laboratories.

We are a member of the non-profit work group AMTSO (Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization). As part of functions performed in the international expert community, we work on improving the transparency, objectivity, and quality of security software tests.

We are also a member of the Cyber Transparency Forum where we are an auditor, dealing with the analysis and evaluation of telemetry data and systems provided by developers of cybersecurity solutions. We cooperate with them to provide transparency to build trust among Internet users in cybersecurity software and service providers.
