Anti-virus Rankings: October 2009

Posted on

A new report from AV-Comparatives tested 16 current anti-virus/anti-malware (AV/AM) products against a battery of current malware to see how well each product performed.

The results? None of the AV/AM products received a rating of “very good” (the highest rating), but several performed well. These received their Advanced+ rating (the highest rating) (listed in no particular order): eScan, Symantec, Microsoft, F-Secure, Kaspersky, and Bitdefender.

My favorite? Microsoft Security Essentials, which is free for non-commercial use.
