• Features: In a world where all AV companies have something extra to offer, we look at which firm is bundling the best extra features, as well as those that are trying to sneak money-making programs into your installations The test data we’ve used was collected between May and June 2017, using the most up-to-date versions of the antivirus software available.
Antivirus might not be as vitally important to your online safety as fear-mongering security firms might have you believe, but for those who want to surf the web worry-free, it’s always a good idea.
However, all but the least confident internet users should be able to correctly differentiate between Kaspersky’s free and commercial products.
The client closely resembles its paid-for counterpart in its clean look and feel, with a main screen that displays your protection status, along with options to scan your system, update its virus database and open extra tools.
Kaspersky’s engine, in its commercial Internet Security product, is consistently among the best-performance both AV-TEST and SELabs’ tests.
It scored 100% in both real-world exposure and flat file scanning tests at AV-TEST, with no false positives, and significantly less impact on system performance than the industry standard, netting it perfect scores all round.
