Antivirus Performance Comparison

They are capable of doing a wide range of things, ranging from stealing hard disk space, to gaining access to your private information or draining your CPU. There are a myriad of anti-virus applications available to shield your gadgets from these problems. The most important thing to do is select one that has a minimal impact on performance of your system. Every antivirus program we offer is tested against this factor. The results are based on how long it takes each product to complete an operation. For example, Kaspersky Security Cloud Free had an impact on the background of 6percent while running an entire scan. ESET had a slightly greater impact of 12 percent.

The German-based Avira is well-established in our tests and consistently performs well above the 90% mark in all three categories: Performance, Protection and Usability (False Positives). The interface is user comfortable and has a wealth of features including a nifty firewall and a variety of privacy tools. Avira’s subscriptions are priced on a monthly basis, rather than a set 1-3 year period, which makes it simpler to cancel or change the subscription at any time, without having to worry about 2nd-year renewal price shocks.

Essentware, previously known as PCKeeper it is a new name to our tests. It utilizes the Avira Engine that runs under the hood. Overall, it scored well. Its performance and interface are both user-friendly but some issues with stability that resulted in scan jobs freezing up and causing the rating to drop. The detection was satisfactory and a flawless run of the certification sets was rewarded with VB100.
