The first 4 of the ranking is fine for me.
But after that... 🤔
I wonder what their testing protocol is, because if it's just scanning a pack, that explains Avira being second to last.....

Anyway, I don't give any credit to this kind of test!
I prefer my own, or those of my Hub colleagues.

Generally I don't pay much attention to such tests.
But I wanted to show you.
Currently I have Avira and I do not care that it is in last place.
Avira is a good product. I trust more the tests made here on the forum.
They are more reliable and certainly not sponsored

Does AVIRA Free Security have protection against ransomware ?
According to this program description Avira does. But it seems to me that the free version does not have this feature. Unless I'm mistaken.

I just got official confirmation from Avira that the free version of Avira Free Security does not have ransomware protection. This option is available in the paid version of Avira.

So on the website they erroneously stated that it has ransomware protection
