AV-Comparatives Awards 2022 for TotalAV
TotalAV achieved great success in AV-Comparatives’ Consumer Main-Test Series of 2022, winning it a number of awards. The tests covered different protection scenarios, system performance, and false positives.
We found TotalAV Antivirus Pro to be very simple to install and use. The program’s features are easily found in a single menu panel, and default settings and alerts are sensible. On-access protection means that files are scanned for malware if you try to copy them to your PC, and malware on a USB drive is detected as soon as you open the drive in Windows Explorer. In addition to anti-malware features, it includes phishing protection and a system performance tuner.
AV-Comparatives’ tests are very carefully designed and executed to thoroughly and realistically simulate scenarios that face users in real life. Consequently, a certification by AV-Comparatives is a guarantee of an effective and reliable product. An “Approved Product” award means that the software has been rigorously checked to ensure that it will perform its intended task competently. It is an industry-recognised standard of quality.
AV-Comparatives’ tests have multiple aspects, to represent the different requirements of IT security solutions. Further awards highlight the effectiveness of individual programs in different protection scenarios, low false positives, and low impact on system performance. Users can thus see which programs score highly in the categories that matter most to them.
