AV-Comparatives Awards 2022 for Total Defense

Total Defense achieved great success in AV-Comparatives’ Consumer Main-Test Series of 2022. The tests covered different protection scenarios, system performance, and false positives.

Total Defense Essential Anti-Virus is easy to install, and presents a very simple program interface that makes the most important functions easy to find. In our functionality check, external USB drives were automatically scanned on connection, and highly sensitive on-access protection proactively deleted malware on a network share as soon as we opened it in Windows File Explorer. Help articles are clear and well illustrated.
