Now! ESET has just released their newest security suite: ESET Smart Security 9 (2016 Edition). These products are on the top of security suites which are produced by giants on security companies. Most of them released 2016 editions of their products. I want to compare on their newest products with new features (such as on ESET: Banking Protection, Bitdefender: Ransomware Protection and new Firewall, etc...) and some enhanced features.

And now, which is your choose for your security? Please let me know your opinion!

I would have said Kaspersky BUT 2015 ran perfect for me, on my PC... But Kapersky 2016 made EVERYTHING slow way down, PC and internet.

Emsisoft is my first choice here (privacy, choice over detection, performance, reliability, etc). ESET my second. The other two I won't use for many specific reasons. Trust being one of the reasons and not responding to my support tickets yet another one. Mostly for false positive or suspicious files.

for me it is a difficult choice between ESET and Emisoft, I've used both and both I was glad I did not have any problems with them did their jobs very well.
Kaspersky for my equipment is too heavy a drag me browsing, and even the same laptop I worked hard, so I had to give it up.
despite all my vote is for Eset.

If the OS is Windows 10, then including Kaspersky in this battle is unfair since Kaspersky still have limitations (big limitations) in that OS.
I voted Emsisoft because it's the one I use currently.
But I also like ESET. I'm even thinking on switching temporarily to ESET to test its new version. :D

Laptop: W7 - W10: = Emsisoft

Desktop or Laptop: W7 - 10 = ESET

Desktop i7 4th Gen w\SSD = Kaspersky ... even with SSD shutdown takes long.

Pretty hard to choice from now, if we are going to compare them without limitations and issues then the rank may go between Kaspersky, Emsisoft as Top 2 and the bottom 2 will be ESET and Bitdefender.

However that base on supported components to enhance the protection capabilities, still that should depends how percentage detection rate manage to improve against on going test.

Firewall capabilities and few other stuffs: Emsisoft and Kaspersky has an X factor for that.

For privacy, I choose Emsisoft - very respectful of your privacy.
For protection, Kaspersky, Emsi, and ESET are all quite good. Same goes with Bitdefender. But I will never choose Bitdefender because of its bugs and wifi problems.

Because I have a low-end netbook, I will choose ESET - light on my slow system.

Kaspersky is the only one of the above mentioned that I would install alone right now, without feeling the need for additional protection.

I think Eset because they are quick at adding threats to their database and it is way more lighter on system resources than Kaspersky.
