About us


AVLab Cybersecurity Foundation


The AVLab organization has been operating in the security industry since 2012. One of the primary objectives of AVLab is to test the usefulness of security solutions, issue certificates confirming the protection effectiveness against malware, and also provide results to public information while ensuring the maximum transparency of the tests.

In the studies we use malicious software, tools, and techniques of bypassing security that are used in real cyberattacks. The organization already cooperates with the largest companies in the endpoint cybersecurity industry.

In early September 2019, we wrote in detail about the Israeli system Pegasus designed to track and spy mobile devices. The Polish Press Agency became interested in this article. Our publication has been sent to online media as trustworthy information from the country.

Polish Ministry of National Defense in the “Information Bulletin SRnIK MON” uses our publication about attacks of malicious software Pegasus on devices with Android and iOS systems. We have been comparing security of messengers in this article.

We don’t have first place, but also we don’t have such length of service like AV-Comparatives or AV-Test. Even so, we are currently 4 and 5 in Europe and worldwide in categories of popularity and trust in companies testing IT solutions.
