AV-Comparatives 2019 Public Main Test Series

AV-Comparatives performs a Main Test Series for both consumer and business security products. Please see our website for past reports and test methods.

Our 2019 Consumer and Business Main Test Series both include various individual tests, such as Real-World Protection Tests, Malware Protection Tests, Performance Tests, Enhanced Real-World Tests*, and a summary reports including product reviews.

* The Enhanced Real-World Test is a newly introduced test, in which we will be testing protection against the latest hacking and penetration techniques used by attackers to access external computer systems.

Antivirus/security software producers interested in subscribing to our services for either of these 2019 test series should apply to AV-Comparatives before 20th December 2018. Please note that inclusion of any product in the test series is at our own discretion. The number of test candidates for each of the Public Main-Test Series is limited, mainly in order to get these tests done within a reasonable time period.
