3rd Avira... 

11th Avast...

Independent security testing lab AV-Comparatives has revealed a summary of its March 2014 Real-World Protection Test, where top antivirus products are exposed to a test set of 1,264 current threats.

Topping the chart this time were Emsisoft Anti-Malware 8.1 and Kaspersky Internet Security 2014, both blocking 99.7% of threats with no false positives at all.

AVIRA Internet Security 14.0 achieved a creditable third place, while seven false positives saw the normally reliable Bitdefender Internet Security 2014 drop to fourth.

Qihoo 360 Internet Security 4.9 proved another highlight, its 99.3% detection rate eclipsing many bigger names: F-Secure, BullGuard, Trend Micro, ESET and more.

At the bottom of the table, AVG continued its largely disappointing run with a 93.4% detection rate (Windows alone blocked 88.4%); only Lavasoft Ad-Aware Free Antivirus+ 1.1, Tencent QQ PC Manager 8.9 and Ahnlab V3 Internet Security 8.0 did worse.

This is just a summary, and we won’t know the details until the full report – covering four months of tests – is released in July. Still, the basic figures are interesting, and you can browse them now on the AV-Comparatives site.
