INNSBRUCK, Austria, Nov. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — AV-Comparatives has released the latest results from its ongoing Business Main-Test Series, a long-term evaluation of the performance of 19 leading enterprise antivirus solutions.

The Austrian antivirus testing lab conducts systematic testing of security software solutions to assess how effective they are at protecting businesses against cybercrime. Certification by AV-Comparatives is a globally accepted yardstick of software performance. 

Bitdefender, Kaspersky, Microsoft, Avast and Panda all achieved a 100% score in the Real-World Protection Test, which analyses solutions’ response to threats using 375 live test cases including working exploits and URLs that point directly to malware.

The Malware Protection Test imitates online malware attacks encountered by typical business users to evaluate the ability of products to detect and block malicious files before and after infection. This assessment uses more than 1,000 malware samples and also features a false-positive test.

G Data, Microsoft, Sophos came in joint first place during this test, with each product achieving a 100% protection rate with no false positives on common business software.

The report can be downloaded free of charge and without registration from the lab’s website: Business Test Factsheet August-September 2021 – AV-Comparatives.
