AV-Comparatives conduct a monthly test independently to assess the effectiveness of the antivirus software available on the marketplace. These monthly checks are conducted by SE labs too. The monthly checkups not only identifies the malware correctly but they also try to rightly avoid false positives.

The last test was done in February and its results came out as a bit of a shock to a lot of gadget freaks. The scoreboard is lead by Kaspersky. However, there was no doubt regarding Kaspersky’s excellent performance. It scored a brilliant 18 on the test. Symantec and Trend Micro too scored the same as Kaspersky, that is to say, both of the antivirus software scored 18. Bitdefender falls short only of .5 points. This is followed by McAfee and Microsoft both scoring 17 points. McAfee and Microsoft are tied for a third place. The last place is occupied by F-Secure which only scored a meager 14.5.

The virus is shorthand for all kind of malicious software. It might be in the form of a ransomware which locks the PC and demands money or in the form of key-logger which records what the user does with their keyboards and send the information to a complete stranger. It can also appear in the forms of Spambot or clickjacking that sends the user to unwanted sites or to the sites which the user does not want to visit. While it is not possible to give a 100% protection overall, the tests make sure the users use the most effective ones to keep their data safe.
