In an earlier story, we discussed the results of the AV-TEST independent results of their Windows 10 antivirus testing. While the top four were revealed and discussed, the middle ground yields programs to admire and some to stay away from.
The middle-ground of any research result generally shows the real truth about a story. With their AV-TEST results, a number of products fell out of the top, and fell to the middle and end of the pile, giving users reasons to ponder.
Quick Heal and Threat Track
Two programs that we want to talk about in the middle are Quick Heal Total Security and Threat Track VIPRE Internet Security. Quick Heal only scored 12.5 points overall, with low scores in protection, performance and usability.
Threat Track VIPRE Security though also fell low in the results from AV-TEST. It tested slightly higher with 13 points, and gave users slightly better protection than Quick Heal. With only 10 points needed, it still needs help.
Windows Defender & Highest Recommendation
Windows 10 comes with Windows Defender installed already, and generally keeps updated on a regular basis. Windows Defender scored 14 points on the testing, meaning it was only slightly better than the prior ones, and needs to be improved from Microsoft.
But, where the tests reveled their highest recommendation were the results from F-Secure Internet Security and Trend Micro. Both got 17.5 points, and give users great safety features. These are the ones to admire and prior ones to question when looking for antivirus products.
There are a lot of antivirus products for Windows 10. These results show which work, which don’t, and which to stay away from.
