Antivirus Performance Comparison

Antivirus performance comparison

All computer users should think about installing a third-party antivirus tool. These tools help to identify and eliminate malware on your PC. They can also block malicious sites that attempt to steal or corrupt data. However they can drastically slow down a computer’s speed as well as performance when they run a scan or updating their database of affected files. This article examines the performance of various antivirus software in tests that measure how much they slow down a computer.

The independent AV Comparatives lab runs many different tests to assess security software products. Its tests cover protection in real-world scenarios, detection of files infected (classical testing), performance and many other functions. Each type of test is run multiple times over the period of a year. based on these results, AV-Comparatives issues Gold, Bronze and Silver awards to security solutions.

This test was an inspiration from a real-world customer scenario. Many customers utilize PowerShell scripts that can take hours or days to complete. These scripts are complex and run on high-performance hardware, therefore we wanted to see how the antivirus scanner affected this. We also wanted to understand how the tools utilized resources on each machine.

Avira Prime performed well in AV Comparatives tests. It offered the 99% of protection against Mac malware, PUAs and Windows Malware. However it requires a monthly subscription to get full functionality and its advertisements are often quite irritating.
