    Anyone ever heard of, or even used, Keniu? Kaspersky + Cloud according to their site.

    BTW congratulations to them for, "100% detection rate, 100% non-manslaughter honor superior achievement." :doubt: (English translation of Chinese text often distorts meaning).

    Yes this Coranti caught my eye also, might give it a spin in the vm. Has anyone else tried it yet?

    Coranti is a multicore Antivirus, it has these engines.
    * BitDefender
    * F-Prot
    * Norman
    * Lavasoft

    as you can imagine is pretty heavy ....

    Always good to see all the free products beating various popular paid products.

    Norton low 30%s for proactive detection? I don't believe that at all.

    Ikarus!!! I would love to trial this AV as a stand-alone. Does anyone know an English-language site with trials available?

    (AFAIK, Ikarus is the AV component of EAM, right?)

    I was pretty excited to see your idea, Ikarus might be the light quick AV to replace Avast (looking at VB100 and Raymond speed tests, the top candidate is ESET NOD32). I've just loaded the Ikarus trial, and run the first scan, so far it's fitting in fine. There are two issues I see right away though: 1. At Raymond the file input output time is huge for Ikarus, 3,920 secs compared to 41 for Avast and EAM (how can that be if Ikarus is part of EAM?) 2. The price is more than $50. You can get EAM with the Ikarus and their own engine for at least $10 less than that.

    Looks like EAM dropped a bit :D

    And G-Data back to "almost" TOP! :rolleyes:

    Panda and Dr.Web were not tested :(

    Also Sophos did a good job. :thumb:

    Norton always sucks at this kind of heuristics tests. Just look at the AV-C praoctive, it also scores about 35% percent there.

    But once they enter a dynamic tests the Insight and SONAR modules get involved and then they get a great score.

    Summary:
    Norton signatures: really good
    Norton heuristics: sucks
    Norton usability and interface etc: great
    Norton next-gen modules (behavior/reputation based [SONAR, Insight etc.]): great
    Norton overall dynamic product: great

    About the results, they really seem to be pretty consistent:
    - AVG doing better than Avira and avast! for quite a long time the RAP now
    - Ikarus, Sunbelt, CheckPoiont doing great
    - all the multiple engine products are in the top: G Data, Emsisoft (however Emsisoft engine hardly adds something to Ikarus I think), Coranti, Trustport

    Personally I am very happy with the performance of ESET, they had a not so good year last year. But they seem to be fighting back.

    Shouldn't these modules be part of proactive testing? I always thought proactive tests were supposed to show an AVs ability to stop zero-day malware that it likely doesn't have signatures for yet. Norton is top notch against zero-day malware.

    I do agree with -- like many others -- this is also why people say on-demand and proactive testing (like this and AV-Comparatives) is outdated, and that real product dynamic testing is the way to go (most AV-Test tests and the AV-Comparatives Dynamic test).
    But I also understand why such components are not really included, most of those kind of components don't pick up malicious software, but potentially malicious software, and then pop-up to request user intervention to make the final decision.

    Excellent point.
    To test the full capability would require a tester to make a determination for each alert generated which is impractical.
