Malware Comparison Table in September 2023

The following summary shows a comparison of tested solutions to protect workstations against malware. We encourage you to become familiar with a detailed description and read our testing methodology in order to understand the results.

PRE-LAUNCH: The classification concerns detecting malware samples before they are launched in the system.
POST-LAUNCH: The analysis level, i.e. a virus has been run and blocked by a tested product.
FAIL: The failure, i.e. a virus hasn’t been blocked and it has infected a system.
Sandbox Column: Number of indicators, i.e. malicious changes made to the system without the anti-virus installed.

Remediation Time Average (RT): The time expressed in seconds from the introduction of malware into the system by a browser, through the launch to detecting and resolving security incident. Occurs only at the POST-Launch level.

Certificates are granted to solutions that are characterized by a high level of security, with a rating of at least 99% of blocked threats in the Advanced In-The-Wild Malware Test.

Our tests comply with the guidelines of the Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization.
Details about the test are available at this website as well as in our methodology.
