    Even before opening the pdf , I knew kaspersky would be among top 2.

    Re: AV-Comparatives | Heuristic Behavioral test released!

    I was surprised to see Microsoft earn Advanced+ marks (77% heuristic detection) when I realized they still used 2.1...

    ...Come on, show us 4 and they ought to really shine (hopefully)!

    I am disappointed Webroot chose not to participate since at one point Prevx Technology was described as a behavior blocker...I remember at one point their website trivialized the cloud by reducing it to:

    "...any definitions we do have are stored in the cloud."

    My point is...Prevx/WSA technology relies heavily on behavior analysis. They should have been tested here. That's my opinion.

    No Runtime detection layers in ESET products; but no needed for giving you legendary proactive protection. :D

    Eset hasn't really done much with 'Automatic mode' in HIPS. Not adding any
    additional protection.

    Because that feature is not intended for malware detection.

    If you see the report shows 87% just using the heuristics scanning engine. Most products cannot reach that rate using traditional core technologies

    Really? What is it intended for?

    Eset is great at low FPs, as always. Keep a good work :thumb:

    Pretty good for Avast! Amazing that Kaspersky got almost 100%. Very surprised Vipre did so bad.

    Pretty impressed with Panda for being a cloud product it did pretty well.

    I thought cloud was invented to give a better detection/protection than the traditional methods ?

    It was not the case, here. :D
    Technology stop malware, not buzzwords like "cloud" or brand names.

    I have noticed something misleading in the awarding: The False positive results are based on static testing.
    But no problem as most samples were detected without need of execution; and considering this is the first behavioral test, is OK.

    This test turned off the cloud protection...you understand that right?

    This test turned off signature protection for traditional products, and turned off cloud protection for Panda.

    This test was not aimed at testing the cloud against other vendors. This test was, however, aimed at pairing all vendors heuristic/behavioral detection systems up against each other.

    EDIT: This is why Webroot chose not to participate (though I wish strongly that they did). Since their cloud would have been disabled for this test, they would have had to guard the system solely on heuristics. Which they claim to be able to do with their "offline mode". Why they didn't want to be tested here is beyond me and a bit disappointing in my opinion since they claim "you are protected whether you are online or offline."

    Webroot, oh Webroot....WeBOOt.

    The test organization in which I have the most confidence is AV-C. That is true even when my favorites are not the top ones.:)

    Isn't Vipre what Kingsoft AV uses? I've been hearing a lot about how good and light KAV is--maybe light because it's not working hard enough?

    Kingsoft and GFI do not share engines as far as I am aware.
