Thursday, November 03, 2011 Anti-Phishing Test August 2011 Mapped Against Malicious Software Detection has published their first Anti-phishing test 2011. The results are from August and so contain a combination of 2011 and 2012 products. The sample size was under 1000 so some people may complain that this was a bit on the low side. The top 10 finishers are listed below. The range from best to worst was pretty broad: 98.6 for Webroot at the top and 76.3 for Qihoo in the 19th position. TrustPort, which is usually one of the top products for Virus Bulletin’s RAP test, came in 18th at 76.9. Anti-Phishing Results 2011

1. Webroot - 98.6
2. eScan - 97.3
3. McAfee - 96.7
4. Bullguard - 96.1
5. Bitdefender - 94.4
6. Trend Micro - 92.8
7. F-Secure - 92.1
8. Symantec - 89.4
9. Avira - 89.1
10. K7 - 88.7

There was no real correlation when Anti-Phishing results were mapped against’s On Demand Detection of Malicious Software August 2011 Test. Eeeek. One would hope the better products would rise to the top in both tests. Maybe next time.

A major whoops to TrustPort who finished 18th at 76.9%. Also, TrustPort and Bullguard have consistently been top performers in Virus Bulletin RAP Average Quadrant . McAfee and K7, not so much.
