    Nice to see Eset doing reasonably well . Avira results look questionable.

    I am also glad that ESET did well.:D

    But AVIRA, they are heading the wrong way, really surprising.
    But of course AVIRA have been on-top for a long time so I guess they can't head anywhere else but down, unfortunately.
    I mean they can't be the king of every test they participate in.

    Eset and BitDefender with no false positives.

    Another load of BS from dennis labs. Avoiding the fact that showing any AV product as 100% just shows your test uses a misleadingly low amount of samples, let's skip directly to something else.

    Bitdefender scores higher than the top-notch dual engine G-Data, which uses the BitDefender engine. Nice joke of a test Dennis Labs :thumb:

    BitDefender also scores higher than G Data for the months of October 2010 and December 2010 in AV-Test.org's Real-World Testing.

    Proof :D
    IMO if it was On Demand G-Data should have performed better (Since it has the same engine + another one).
    Or maybe it wasn't On Demand and all modules of the suite was involved. :D

    For some reason i can't load the PDF

    BD can score better than products usig their engine because of the added enhancements in the latest engine which they haven't provided to them..:)

    No Comodo and avast :'(

    Anyway interesting to see F-Secure not doing so well here, while they were among the best in AV-C dynamic test last year.

    Congrats to Symantec.

    Quote from the Dennis Technology home page:
    Then in APPENDIX E: TESTING TERMS
    As a promotional tool for Symantec, it is certainly legal and effective, certainly not a neutral test.

    BitDefender has better proactive protection and a new engine with lots of improvements.

    Unreliable and paid test. Trend Micro failed on both av-test.org and av-comparatives.org and they tell me it's second best security suite ?!

    Come on, only someone completely unaware of the real facts will believe this unfair test.

    Trend Micro performed well in AV-Test.org's Real-World Testings.

    as stated by malexous. Trend performed fairly well in 2010 dynamic tests.
