Whole Product Dynamic Real World Protection Test – April 2012

AV-Comparatives.org has released their latest Whole Product Dynamic Real World Protection Test – April 2012.  An informative document that will be updated several times over the course of the year. What’s even more interesting than the results alphabetically by vendor is going online and sorting by performance.  Isn’t that what it’s all about?  The numbers below are "percent captured".

April Results from AV-Comparatives.org

    99.8 – BitDefender
    99.4 – G Data
    99.2 – Kaspersky
    99.2 – BullGuard
    98.4 – Qihoo

Same order as March with the numbers changing a bit.  Below are the results from March.  Webroot was in the position of shame with 86.2.  They were the only company capturing less than 90%.   You won’t find this result on their website, I believe.

March Results

    99.8 – BitDefender
    99.8 – G Data
    99.4 – Kaspersky
    99.2 – BullGuard
    98.6 – Qihoo
