The German testing laboratory AV-Test has published another list of the best anti-viruses for Windows 10. In the ranking there were as many as 20 companies producing antivirus software.
The maximum number of 18 points has been obtained by Kaspersky Lab. The company was rated the highest in all categories – protection, performance and usability.
Interestingly, the same number of points won also a little-known company AhnLab, which has in its portfolio V3 Internet Security. The maximum result is also achieved here.
Four more companies followed them, scoring 17.5 points each. I am talking about solutions from Symantec, McAfee, Bitdefender and Avira. They all scored the maximum number of points in protection, and half of the point lost in performance or usability. 17 points, which is also quite good, was won by Trend Micro and Microworld.
Who should be avoided? The lowest number of points in the ranking was obtained by the Chinese company Qihoo with 360 Total Security software. In the default configuration, it gained only 10 points, while with the additional antivirus engines from Avira and Bitdefender enabled, this value increased to 13 points.
