AV-Test.org: Endurance Test: Which Package Protects Windows the Best?
#1

[Image: avtest_logo_300_113.png]
Quote:For a full 6 months, the laboratory of AV-TEST tested 18 protection suites in terms of their protection, performance and usability. The test under Windows 10 demonstrates how reliably packages continuously protect a system.

The question as to which protection software keeps systems safe over the long-term is not easy to answer. The laboratory of AV-TEST tested 18 candidates over a period of 6 months in terms of their protection, performance and usability. While some products proved to have staying power, others demonstrated a kind of biorhythm – constant ups and downs in performance. The test also answered the question as to whether Windows Defender built into the Windows operating system is sufficient as basic protection.

In the evaluation, products were able to receive up to 6 points in each of the three categories tested. Only the protection package Avira AntiVirus Pro achieved 18 points in the continuous test from March to August 2018. Following close behind with excellent scores of 17.8 to 17.5 points, however, were the packages from Kaspersky Lab, McAfee, AhnLab, Bitdefender and VIPRE Security. That is why in a traditional certification test by AV-TEST, these products would receive the TOP PRODUCT distinction, alongside a security certificate. The lab awards this to all products attaining a final result of 18 to 17.5 points.

The upper third in the ranking of products in the test achieved 17.5 or more points. The middle third of the test, however, has nothing to be ashamed of: excellent point scores of 17.4 to 17.1 were achieved by the packages from AVG, Avast, Symantec, Microworld, Trend Micro and Microsoft. The lower third BullGuard, Comodo, K7 Computing, G Data and F-Secure scores between 16.8 and 15.7 points. The only exception is PC Pitstop with 13.7 points.
