This test shows how an antivirus behaves with certain threats, in a specific environment and under certain conditions.
We encourage you to compare these results with others and take informed decisions on what security products to use.
Before buying an antivirus you should consider factors such as price, ease of use, compatibility, and support. Installing a free trial version allows an antivirus to be tested in everyday use before purchase.

When over half the products tied for 1st place (in protection).... that's not much of a test.

But I get it... it's a business. You give out more trophies, you get more business.

Too bad.

I'm skeptical of McAfee too. It's had over a decade of mediocrity and sucktitude. Yes, it's gotten a few decent test results lately. But it's had some poor ones too. But we shall see. I hope they get better and we have more real competition.

This tests are jokes. There is no way Avast Free or Windows Defender giving this same protection level as Kaspersky Internet Security or Norton.

In the real world tests (web and email threats) this is possible, although Avast has got a slightly lower score in July. Avast has a very good Web Shield and CyberCapture. WD has SmartScreen anti-phishing and BAFS.
Kaspersky can be better in malware tests which do not rely so much on web-based threats.
