    Big Comparative Test - Internet Security Suites 2011
    Scroll down and you will see the PDF.

    Now, just so you know it's all in German :D

    And I am from Schweden :rolleyes: and I don't understand a word of the German language. But I thought that I post this anyway since they use Green and Red colors, as well as + and - so it's quite easy to understand after all.

    Just take it for what it is :thumb:

    Thx, being Dutch so German is as easy to read as Norwegian is for Swedish people, I find the extract/findings funny: and the winner is a German company Avira, while based on the individual tests I had expected G-data or Panda to be the overall winner :D

    Well, the text kind of implies it.

    Norton won first,Panda second and ESET third.Besides,glad that ESET has the best overall speed and performance in this test.This test showed Avira,McAfee and Norman only has "satisfactory" features while ESET,Btidefender,Kaspersky,F-Secure,Symantec,Trend Micro and Panda have "Good" features.Finally,GDATA has "very good"for its features.That means Gdata has provides the best protection features for its security suite.

    I thought that the first aim of a security suite was to protect the user - ESET comes third overall but in the two malware tests it comes last and 7th
    In fact if the results for security alone are considered the order is changed to
    Panda Security
    Kaspersky
    F-Secure
    Symantec
    BitDefender
    Avira
    ESET
    G Data
    Trend Micro
    McAfee
    Norman

    Also I don't understand the G Data result as both AV test tables have it above ESET and in the first one it achieved 100%
