AV-Comparatives provides certification for parental control software. Parental control solutions are tested against 2,000 URLs with undesirable content in different categories, and 100 child-safe URLs. In order to be certified, a product must block at least 98% of pornographic websites, have no more than a few false alarms on child-friendly websites, and have no severe unresolved bugs (or design flaws) discovered during the review.

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:
