    Interesting test but given the extended period over which the tests were performed some were tested using older versions than others (latest DW,older NIS2009 + CIS 3.9 for example).I'm not sure how much this influences the overall results.o_O

    The interesting thing about this test is to see how ineffective most security suites are against recent malware. With more circulating every day they need to do much better, especially when they expect payment.

    I like the idea behind this test, but they are going about it wrong. You just can't test HIPS vs AV, HIPS will always win. Hence why everything here that has a HIPS module scores high (Comodo scores high but it's AV is very poor for example).

    I can't really think of anything better right now though, but I'm sure someone will put forward a splendid idea.

    dont forget that couple of the antivirus tested has a hips modules,like kav,comodo etc and i think it is fair to test them this way for the test is proactive defense and yes hips will win most of the time:thumb:

    ummm........its more of "security software" tested against malware....so defense wall/Kis/Cis/avast/avira all fit the bill....means tomorrow defense wall may have an av-component... Internet suites/avs have sandboxing implemented...so the lines are very blurry and getting blurred by the moment.So if a product claims to protect its claims have to be tested and tests are relative :doubt:

    Yeah it's more of a security software test rather than an AV test, I see your point.

    Well it is good to see that Kaspersky is again back among top positions because they were bashed for underrated performance at av-comparatives.:thumb:

    But still can't figure out how Avira and GData scored badly in detectionso_O

    Anyways congratulations to DefenseWall.

    this test may mislead ppl to think DW is some sort of av!
    so it isnt , and the person who test avs with DW made a big joke of him self , its like test malware under SB or even in RB environment (and than rollback and say RB pass the test) and compare to any avs out there hehe :argh:

    cheers

    I think combining AVs and HIPS and virtualization software makes an interesting test. Of course, products with just an AV will not do as good (duh).

    But then, it isn't just an AV test. I like "real world" tests. Testing the defaults of different security suites seems good to me, as it can guide "newbies" to which programs are worthwhile.

    CIS's AV may not be the best, but I think saying that it is useless is a bit much.

    Oh the usual Comodo bashers always creep out of the woodwork when anything shows it to be good at something.

    Just ignore it, it's the usual thing on the forum trying to discredit Comodo.

    Sooner or later they will get tired of doing it.

    Thanks. :p


    BTW, I don't use the AV anyway. I don't use any (lol).

    @JamesFrance: I know many here don't like Comodo...but I feel like that doesn't make most of them "bad". :ninja:

    Oh I know it's just a few, but doesn't it get boring when they go on and on?

    it scored badly on AV-C because as its name says its an ANTIVIRUS comparative, this test compares all components.
