After monitoring virus/malware really circulating it was considered appropriate to proceed with a comparison of the most common AntiVirus and AntiSpyware software solutions available nowadays on the market.

Since the extremely high numbers of virus and malware it was considered reasonable to evaluate only the ones more highly infective. This choice aims to get a comprehensive overview about the power detection of different AntiVirus present on the market, all the considered software were put in the same condition:

  • Each AntiVirus has signatures released one month after the malware appeared on the scene;
  • The considered malware during the tests are the ones with higher rate of infections, put in descending ordere;
  • The sample used for the test are real virus/malware, not a simulated or fake infection created ad hoc.

The reference product is Vir.IT eXplorer and AntiSpyware solutions, that obviously must detect all the infective sample used during the test.

The test must not be considered exhaustive, it wants to show only which security solutions are more efficient fighting virus/malware reported from the user to be the most widespread.

In some cases the advertisments or the lack of information can bring the user to have a distorted view of the real power of the product. The obtained result wants to inform, in a manner as possible impartial, the end user about the real efficiency of the tested AntiVirus. Our aim is not, of course, discredit or penalize any of the tested AntiVirus. Our goal is to create in the end user the awareness that even using at the same time on a computer all the AntiVirus and AntiMalware products available on the market the computer can't be considered immune to infections.

After all that has been said, we suggest to cross check the computer with more than one products, for this reason we strongly suggest to try the Vir.IT eXplorer Lite (downloadable without charges from the following page Download). Vir.IT eXplorer Lite was especially developed to run across other security solutions at the same time, all this without creating conflict between the already installed AntiVirus.

In this way, it is possible to appreciate the efficiency of Vir.IT eXplorer Lite, providing a higher level of security to the end user.
