Antivirus Performance Comparison

They are capable of doing a wide range of things, from taking over hard disk space to access to your private information or draining your CPU. There are many anti-virus programs available to shield your devices from these issues. The most important thing to do is select one that has the least impact on your system’s performance. All of our antivirus software is tested against this factor. The results below are basing them on the length of time it takes each program to complete an operation. For instance, Kaspersky Security Cloud Free had an impact on the background of only 6% while performing the full scan, while ESET had a slightly higher impact of 12 percent.

Avira is a German-based company. Avira is a reputable company in our tests and consistently scores above the 90% mark in all three categories: Security, Performance and Usability (False Positives). Its UI is also user easy to use and comes with a variety of functions, including a clever firewall and other privacy tools. Avira subscriptions are priced per month instead of a fixed time period of 1-3 years. This makes it simpler to cancel the subscription or change the terms at anytime.

A relatively new name in our tests, Essentware – which was previously known as PCKeeper utilizes the Avira engine under the hood and generally scores quite well across the board. Its UI is simple to use and its performance was satisfactory this month, though there were some issues with stability, mainly with scan jobs locking up dented the rating. The detection was great and a flawless run of the certification sets resulted in VB100.
