Performance Test May 2017

AV-Comparatives released their latest Performance Test Report for Windows security products under Microsoft Windows 10.

21 products were tested regarding their impact on system performance. But keep in mind: Protection is more important than speed!

Malware Protection Test March 2017

We released our newly introduced Malware Protection Test. It assesses a security program’s ability to protect a system against infection by malicious files; what is unique about this test is that in addition to checking detection in scans, it additionally assesses each program’s last line of defence. Any samples that have not been detected e.g. on-access are executed on the test system, with Internet/cloud access available, to allow features such as behavioural protection to come into play. A false alarm test is also included.

You can find additional information in the following two blog posts:
