The lab at AV-TEST examined 22 security packages for Windows 10 in July and August. As always, the experts focused their attention on protection, performance, and usability, which in particular reveals any false alarms. The findings in this test are remarkable, as seldom have there been so many TOP PRODUCT ratings. The rating is only awarded if a product achieves 17.5 or the top score of 18 points. Over two-thirds of the products received this rating from the lab – congratulations!
The other six packages still managed to earn between 16.5 and 12 points. The test involved the Internet security suites and antivirus protection packages from AhnLab, Avast, AVG, Avira, Bitdefender, BullGuard, Cylance, ESET, F-Secure, G Data, Heimdal Security, K7 Computing, Kaspersky, Malwarebytes, McAfee, Microsoft, Microworld, NortonLifeLock, PC Matic, Protected.net, Trend Micro, and VIPRE Security.
The best are dubbed TOP PRODUCT
When users talk about security packages for Windows, now it is no longer about the question “Do you even need a security package?” but rather “Which one is the best?” The choice is now no longer difficult. The lab conducts evaluations in the three categories of protection, performance, and usability, awarding a maximum of 6 points per category. In this test, 8 products achieved the top score of 18 points. They come from AhnLab, Avira, F-Secure, G Data, Kaspersky, McAfee, Microsoft, and NortonLifeLock.
The solutions from Avast, AVG, Bitdefender, BullGuard, ESET, Protected.net, Trend Micro, and VIPRE Security followed with 17.5 points. For achieving between 18 and 17.5 points, these products, in addition to being recognized for “Certified Security”, also earned the label of TOP PRODUCT.
