Home anti-virus products put to the test by AV-Comparatives – which received the highest score?

Many thanks to the great folks at AV-Comparatives, who have sponsored my writing for the past week.

Anti-malware testing lab AV-Comparatives carries out intensive tests of security software, and has just published its report on the performance of home anti-virus products, including the results of all the individual tests it carried out in the last year, a review of 16 products’ user-interfaces, and the awards it gave to products in different categories.

Amongst those products included in the test are anti-virus programs from Avast, AVG, Avira, Bitdefender, ESET, F-Secure, K7, Kaspersky, McAfee, Microsoft, NortonLifeLock, Panda, Tencent, Total Defense, Trend Micro, and VIPRE.
