Emsisoft, Kaspersky top AV-Comparatives' Real-World Protection Test
Independent security testing lab AV-Comparatives has revealed a summary of its March 2014 Real-World Protection Test, where top antivirus products are exposed to a test set of 1,264 current threats.
Qihoo 360 Internet Security 4.9 proved another highlight, its 99.3 percent detection rate eclipsing many bigger names: F-Secure, BullGuard, Trend Micro, ESET and more.
At the bottom of the table, AVG continued its largely disappointing run with a 93.4 percent detection rate (Windows alone blocked 88.4 percent ); only Lavasoft Ad-Aware Free Antivirus+ 1.1, Tencent QQ PC Manager 8.9 and Ahnlab V3 Internet Security 8.0 did worse.
This is just a summary, and we won’t know the details until the full report -- covering four months of tests -- is released in July. Still, the basic figures are interesting, and you can browse them now on the AV-Comparatives site.
