Over 40,000 live tests were performed on each product, providing a ±0.49% margin of error. And since most infections occur in the first few hours after a new malware campaign is launched, the time it takes for a security product to block the attack matters a lot. That is why we tested not only how much malware a product blocks, but how quickly it blocks an attack.

Technology Overview

If you use a computer, you may have been the target of a cyberattack. Some malware (e.g., ransomware) can be catastrophic.  Other malware behaves more like a parasite that uses your PCs resources to perform tasks (e.g., cryptocurrency mining). Yet other malware records your keystrokes and steals passwords or hijacks online banking.

If you are one of millions who works remote or frequently travels, your protection is probably limited to the web browser you choose and your endpoint protection product. In order to provide some guidance, covered eight endpoint protection / anti-virus products.
