What are the best free antivirus for business according to AV-Test Laboratory? The December study shows that one of the best security solutions include software of the following manufacturers: Bitdefender, Kaspersky Lab, McAfee, and Trend Micro. The other tested products also have obtained very good results in terms of protection, performance, and usability, but only the above mentioned test throughout the month with the best ratings.

Certificate "Top Product" is currently the highest award granted by the lab AV-Test. If antivirus in three different categories of tests will score at least 17.5 points on 18 possible (6 for 6 for performance and 6 for utility) is a specially Honorable mention.

Before year 2013 each manufacturer to obtain a certificate have to gain at least 15 points. At that time, each software vendor was liable to increased work for detection, performance and usability. Currently, for normal AV-Test Certificate, just only 10 points, which we believe is not fully the overall quality of the product. For example, the reader may be misled, if not familiar with the detailed results: product X, who has fewer points in the category of protection than product Y, but in the overall scoring will score more points than product X, "meaning" marketing normal AV-Test certificate will be equivalent for both products.
