Antivirus Trends, Comparison and Aggregate Lab Test Results

If you’re here, you’ve been asking yourself the following question:

“What is the best antivirus?”

We have the answer for you, but you don’t have to take our word for it.

We developed this sophisticated antivirus test result aggregator in order to make it easier for you to compare all the unbiased antivirus test results since 2009.

All the tests were performed by third-party laboratories specializing in antivirus software testing.

Every test result you will find here was released by labs who hold the AMTSO (Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization) certificate.

How to use the Antivirus Trends tool?

This easy-to-use tool is our pride and joy!

We made sure that anyone can use it and get a personalized answer in a few clicks.

All you need to do is to select:

  1. What you need to protect:
    Your home computer, a mobile device, or your business network.
  2. The time frame for which you’d like to see test results:
    We recommend looking at the last 12 months or so for the most accurate and relevant results, but feel free to play around with it and try different time frames.
  3. Your operating system:
    Windows, Mac, Android or Linux

Once you have made your choice – click on the big Calculate button.

A few seconds later you’ll have your answer with the top choice, along with an awesome graph showing all the test results during the period you selected.

But wait, there’s more:

You can also see how other antivirus companies fared when they were tested during the same time period by selecting any antivirus from the list to the left of the graph.

Clarifications about the data

A few comments to clarify the results:

Accuracy of test results

Antivirus software companies work constantly to release new and more advanced program versions, as do malware developers.

As fun as it is to play with our lab test results calculator, we recommend you look at more recent tests in order to reach the correct conclusion, but make sure there are enough to show a clear trend and represent reality.

We recommend looking at results which are based on a minimum of 20-30 tests overall and at least 10 tests for each category of testing.

Normalization of scores

We do not change the conclusions one gathers from the tests. The results you see here are based on actual test results, but in some cases the scores are not on a 0 – 100 scale, and we have to normalize them.

For example, AV-Test ranks antivirus software on a 0 – 6 scale, so we divide all the results by 6 and receive the score you see here.

Test type weights

Because all three test types are important, their unweighted average represents the final average score.

You can evaluate the results of each test type separately by changing the sorting in the table near the graph.

Why we built the Antivirus Trends tool?

The answer is simple:

Unbiased reviews hardly exist online, and if you want to be sure you’re making the right choice, you have to know the facts.

In this case it means you have to see the test results for yourself.

Since each antivirus test report is at least 5 pages long and tends to be filled with technical specs and details which you really don’t need, we decided to simplify it for you by removing all the fluff and aggregating the interesting bits – the antivirus test scores.

What else?

We also wrote thorough reviews of each of the deserving antivirus programs which you can read to decide which product suits you better in terms of features, number of covered devices, supported operating systems, and other aspects.

So first you need to find the company that fared best in the lab tests.

Then you should take a look at the review and see if this antivirus is suitable for your specific needs.

If it isn’t, there’s no shame in taking the second-best antivirus instead, as long as it addresses all of your security needs.

Got an idea?

If you think you have an idea which will make this tool even more awesome than it already is, please let us know and we’ll definitely take note of that for the next version we release.
