Hello and welcome to the Intego test!

Intego is an American company, very well known in the Apple world thanks to the VirusBarrier software.
The company has recently entered the world of Windows, using the Avira engine.

The software is light and easy to use, there is no need to configure it.

In terms of protection, Intego has 2 levels.
The engine provided by Avira is good... but I suspect Intego to use the SDK engine of Avira, less effective (the URL number 2 is detected by Avira & F-Secure which also uses Avira Cloud and not by Intego).
Then, I never saw its proactive protection react, even though it was activated. My Origami Ransomware was able to successfully block the virtual machine.

On the web, Intego is bad. No detection on Phishing, and 2 URLs blocked by the Web agent, it's too little !

Even if Intego seemed confident, considering the multiple black points, we do not recommend using Intego to protect yourself.

Phishing Test : 0/4 (all missed)
Malware URL test : 9/10 (1 missed)
