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.
I agree. Webroot is a fine antivirus. The way it take care of malware is very different than most normal antivirus engines. Those that dont agree can just use the wealth of other antiviruses.
That is right, and that is why you will not see this in tests (especially in real-world tests) with SmartScreen on Chromium Edge, except when you preselect the samples and choose only those that could bypass SmartScreen (anti-phishing and application-reputation).I hope I won't, but legit and fully updated apps can be exploited by a zero day exploit and then a behavioural block becomes very important. Or an application may update and a supply chain attack may replace a dll with a malicious one, smartscreen won't catch that if the exe doesn't change.
The chance of something like this happening is small but to secure against these attack vectors, it's up to the BB.
Ha, ha. It is really not for people who would run 0-day malware on their computers.
3 other free AVs + CIS, I stand corrected
The premium version has additionally: Advanced Real-Time Threat Prevention, Ransomware Security, Advanced Web Security, Banking Protection, etc.Indeed, but would like to see how the free version of it performs
It would not be fair, if the free AVs have got significantly worse scorings.3 other free AVs + CIS, I stand corrected
"AI" in Sophos marketing material is tricky, it has been used as a term in a less than ideal way.The premium version has additionally: Advanced Real-Time Threat Prevention, Ransomware Security, Advanced Web Security, Banking Protection, etc.
But, the free version can use AI deep learning, so it will be probably not bad protection (similar to other free AVs).

Thanks harlan, it didn't do great I guess.Sophos Home Premium - June 2019 Report Due to the small number of samples used in this tests, you should take results with a grain of salt.

How did you find it's behavior blocker for malware ? ( excluding fileless/scripts where we know this suite is not strong and excluding ransomware as it has a specialized module for that) , is it on par with the SONARs, DeepGuards and System Watchers out there?Hum I don't think it lacks anything (any module)... but probably a better signature detection would be better, also if You check some results of the testing, it also had issues to stop/blocking scripts...
It’s important to note SOPHOS was just purchased by a private equity firm. It is unclear what their motives are. We may not see much improvement in their product if their sole intent is to bleed them dry, though they may be planning a different path.How did you find it's behavior blocker for malware ?

Regarding scripts, SHP doesn't have AMSI yet, they just added AMSI one month ago to their enterprise endpoint, at some point it will be added to SHP but not word on it yet, so till they support AMSI I don't expect it to do well with scripts.
weaker signatures I don't mind so much tbh, they only concern static detection and one can always upload a file to virus total
What I'm trying to get to is, if the BB is good, when they add AMSI this could well become one of good suites, and for those of us that prefer management via web dashboard, it could be the product of choice.
