Hello everyone and welcome to this Indian antivirus comparison! :)
The goal is to compare 2 very well known Indian antivirus, to see if they are light and if they are effective.
The match is between K7 Total Security vs QuickHeal Total Security.
The test battery will be identical: 5 phishing URLs (3 of which are backup for K7, but the same for QuickHeal), 10 malware URLs (Trojan, PSW, RAT, Botnet etc), a pack of 5580 malware and my Origami at the end.

Who will win?

Interface and functionality:

The 2 antivirus offer a clear interface, certainly less pretty in K7 (I like colored interfaces xD ). The 2 softwares have the same modules: Firewall, Web protection etc, even if QuickHeal has additional modules (Webcam protection, Anti-Tracking etc).

ApTime :

K7 starts Edge in 36ms while QuickHeal does it in 42ms .
Not too much delay.

Phishing Protection:

A big ZERO for K7 which blocked none!
QuickHeal blocked 2, it's very weak...

Malware URL protection :

The 2 antiviruses blocked everything.

Malware Pack:

K7 found 5173 malware while QuickHeal found 5103.
I found K7's scan much faster, but it took longer to remove (it even ran K7 Desinfector to remove files infected with viruses like MyDoom, Sobig, Chir.B or Neshta)
QuickHeal is slower to scan, but this is explained. The antivirus software deletes at the same time, so it takes longer to scan.

At runtime, K7 is the best!
Very few malwares pass, K7 intercepts some of them.
QuickHeal, on the other hand, is something else. Even if it intercepts a lot of malware, it also lets a lot of it through! (especially PolyRansom which certainly could not start because the antivirus was attacking it) but it was always present and threatening! )

Origami Ransomware :

The 2 antiviruses have blocked the attack. A little faster with K7.

Overall Test :

K7 makes a virtual machine free of infection. Only 2/3 of the infections are found by Norton but can be easily removed.
QuickHeal is a cold shower... Many infections are found by anti-malware tools! (including the presence of PolyRansom).

Winner: K7 Total Security!

Herkese merhaba ve bu Hint antivirüs karşılaştırmasına hoş geldiniz! :)
Amaç, çok iyi bilinen 2 Hint antivirüsünü karşılaştırmak, hafif olup olmadıklarını ve etkili olup olmadıklarını görmek.
Maç K7 Total Security ile QuickHeal Total Security arasında.
Test pili aynı olacaktır: 5 kimlik avı URL'si (3'ü K7 için yedek, ancak QuickHeal için aynı), 10 kötü amaçlı yazılım URL'si (Trojan, PSW, RAT, Botnet vb.), 5580 kötü amaçlı yazılım paketi ve Origami'm son.

Kim kazanacak?

Arayüz ve işlevsellik:

2 antivirüs, net bir arayüz sunar, kesinlikle K7'de daha az hoş (renkli arayüzleri severim xD). 2 yazılım aynı modüllere sahiptir: QuickHeal'in ek modülleri olsa bile (Webcam koruması, Anti-Tracking vb.) Güvenlik Duvarı, Web koruması vb.

ApZamanı :

K7, Edge'i 36ms'de başlatırken, QuickHeal bunu 42ms'de yapıyor.
Çok fazla gecikme değil.

Kimlik Avı Koruması:

Hiçbirini bloke etmeyen K7 için büyük bir SIFIR!
QuickHeal bloke 2, çok zayıf...

Kötü amaçlı yazılım URL koruması:

2 antivirüs her şeyi engelledi.

Kötü Amaçlı Yazılım Paketi:

QuickHeal 5103, K7 5173 kötü amaçlı yazılım buldu.
K7'nin taramasını çok daha hızlı buldum, ancak kaldırılması daha uzun sürdü (MyDoom, Sobig, Chir.B veya Neshta gibi virüs bulaşmış dosyaları kaldırmak için K7 Desinfector'ı bile çalıştırdı)
QuickHeal'in taranması daha yavaştır, ancak bu açıklanmıştır. Virüsten koruma yazılımı aynı anda siler, bu nedenle taranması daha uzun sürer.

Çalışma zamanında, K7 en iyisidir!
Çok az sayıda kötü amaçlı yazılım geçer, K7 bazılarını durdurur.
QuickHeal ise başka bir şeydir. Çok sayıda kötü amaçlı yazılımı engellese bile, birçoğunun geçmesine de izin verir! (özellikle antivirüs saldırdığı için kesinlikle başlayamayan PolyRansom) ama her zaman mevcut ve tehditkardı! )

Origami Ransomware :

2 antivirüs saldırıyı engelledi. K7 ile biraz daha hızlı.

Genel Test:

K7, sanal bir makineyi enfeksiyondan arındırır. Bulaşmaların yalnızca 2/3'ü Norton tarafından bulunur ancak kolayca kaldırılabilir.
QuickHeal soğuk bir duştur... Kötü amaçlı yazılımdan koruma araçları tarafından birçok enfeksiyon bulunur! (PolyRansom'un varlığı dahil).

Kazanan: K7 Total Security!

eScan has already been tested :)
The request I received is to include Indian AVs with their own engine. There are only 2 in India (there is also Protegent 360 but a video is planned on it, so it does not participate either)

Finally ran some MacOS malware samples through K7 (mac version) (Catalina unpatched for worst possible scenario) and it caught everything. I ran a clean up scan with malwarebytes and nothing was left. Conversely I ran cylance smart and lol it missed everything *sigh*

This is very unfortunate they suspended your YT account. Is there a chance to upload this video on Odysee? Of course if you have time.
