Kaspersky, Trend Micro and Microsoft Defender on top in AV-Comparatives Real-World Chart 02/2018

 

AV-Comparatives releases detailed overall result consumer product reports (covering five months each) in July and December, but also short overviews monthly. The chart below shows only the protection scores and results of the false-positives for the month of February 2018 (203 test cases).

 

Five top class AV's, Kaspersky, Trend Micro, Microsoft Defender, F-Secure and Symantec were able to find and block 100.0% of the widespread malicious samples used in a test. Free Microsoft Defender has established it's position in top class. F-Secure find all malwares but also many false-positives which weakens its usability. Some of Symantec's findings were user dependent.

 

Eight AV's were in middle class (99.5% block rate): Bitdefender, Panda, Tencent, Avast, AVG, ESET, McAfee and Avira.

 

Five AV's were in lower class (99.0% - 95.0% block rate): Vipre, K7, Emsisoft, BullGuard and Quick Heal.

 

Of best AV's Microsoft Defender and Tencent are totally free. Kaspersky, Bitdefender, Panda, Tencent, Avast, AVG and Avira have also free versions.

Since Microsoft has a few different AV products. Are they all the same with the same AV core engine?

Test was done by using Windows 10 RS3 64-bit OS with up-to-date 3rd-party software such as Adobe Flash & Acrobat Reader, Java, etc. Due to this, finding working exploits and running malware is more difficult than in unpatched system or in system with vulnerable 3rd-party applications.

 

Free versions in test were Windows Defender, Tencent PC Manager, Panda, AVG and Avast.

The predictive algo in MS antimalware core engine is actually pretty good.

yea?

 

There was a paper published on this last year comparing core engines from different companies. I will post it here later if I can find it. Signature based detection is pretty much dead now. It's ok for defensive measure but new gen of zero-day malwares are now much more sophisticated that requires proactive measure, where many antimalware engines from different major companies are using AI for advanced detection and protection.

I prefer ESET. Kaspersky slow down my old pc

 

I tried ESET on more PC-s and most of them worked better and faster with Kaspersky .  That`s why I agree also with the results from av-test.org

You might be right if you are installing AV on a really old PC , with less than 2GB Ram .

In my experience and opinion ESET best. I am using ESET since 12 year :)

 

But flagging NF as a malicious site is, besides false positive, an unforgivable misconception!!! ?

Also, "their SSL filtration", :rofl:

 

Is big mistake that haunts :pope:

 

De facto, using Eset Mobile Security on Android, render the navigation on nsaneforums impossible, because they implemented the same block rule also on mobile, and

 

and, there is no whitelist :rofl:

Lol  if you that big of a noob  you don't know how to turn off ssl filtering in Eset and how to whitelist  nsane  on Windows you derisive  to be blocked . They been blocking this site long before I used NOD32 all the time , they added that to NOD32  way back in v3  and i never started using it all  the  time tell v7. . So can we talk about something  new ? :tooth:

 

As far as SSL filtering the only ones got and A  was Avast  and Bullguard  these are best at not breaking anything.

Don't bother with antivirus, it does more harm than good, warns former Mozillian.

Quote

The only circumstance that non-Microsoft AV might help is for PCs still running seven-year-old Windows 7, or unsupported Windows XP. In these cases, third-party AV "might make you slightly less doomed", according to O'Callahan.

I do not know you guys, but am I the only one who thinks that even with 99.5% those AVs are quite good there. I mean, it's what they are made for and even letting 0.5% go through is not good, but overall these AVs are good against most badware out there is quite good I think.

This topic is nothing do with Android   there talking about protection  on windows witch when  you use them you're trusting them with you're  classified info and things . Most are using SSL/TLS interception if you dont turn it off and it  breaks websites and can be used to spy on you.

I may have express myself in a bad way, my apologies for that :(

 

I had concerns about the SSL capabilties of Antivirus, and expressed a doubt about our privacy using products with them.

 

My main critic was around the absence of the whitelist on the Mobile product.

 

Regards,

 

LOL ,  no need  to apologize  , It's not  uconman   for things to be ported  from win 32  to mobile to be crippleware , after all thats why windows phone went under  nobody wanted to use it. even apps like kodi while they work OK on Mobile they are much harder  to install  addons and things than for Windows and Linux.  you have to put the url in instead of  just installing the zip.

Don't know but MSE scores 17.5/18 and 6/6 of protection in the last AV-test for Windows 7 (02/18). MSE protection is at the same level as in Defender but Windows 7 is secondary OS for Microsoft and there they come... vulnerabilities. :thumbsdown:
