Security Survey 2017

We conducted our annual survey to improve our service to the end-user community. Respondents were asked for their opinions on various topics related to anti-virus software testing and anti-virus software in general.

The report of our latest annual security survey is now available here!

Business Network Performance Test

We published a special Network Performance Test commissioned by ESET, wherein 6 major business security suites  were tested. The Network Performance Test compared resource utilization and management by six endpoint security solutions testing their impact on resources such as network traffic and machine load (CPU and RAM).

“Next-Gen” Security Test/Review and Business Security Test 2016

“Next Generation” describes security products that work on a different principle from traditional antivirus software. Some “NextGen” products may only provide logging and analysis of threats (useful for incident response), rather than actually protecting against them. In some cases, protection features are deactivated by default and have to be enabled and configured by the administrator before they can be used.

This report marks the first time AV-Comparatives has tested and included next-generation security products in a public comparative test report. We had reached out several leading vendors in this space, requesting their participation in the test. Unfortunately, a number of vendors refused to participate in this independent evaluation. Since their products could not be included in this public report, we are unable to approve them as valuable next-generation security products. We look forward to their future participation in independent tests.

In parallel to the next-gen test, we also evaluated the security provided by some “traditional” business security products. Please find the reports here:
