Bitdefender, which is the technology behind our very own Companion AV, has topped the Windows 8.1 AV-Test.org list in February. With a 6 out of 6 in all three categories of performance, protection, and usability, and a catch rate for viruses of 100%. Bitdefender wins for both an office and home solution and beats Microsoft’s corporate System Centre product which only caught 76% of viruses and malware.
AV-Test is one of two leading antivirus testing houses, released its February antivirus ratings for Windows 8.1 PCs. After assessing the 27 or so available antimalware packages on protection, performance, and usability, the big names such as Bitdefender and Kasperky have come out with near perfect scores while Microsoft sat at the bottom.
It is important to be aware that you cannot simply rely on the built-in antivirus tools to protect your PC. You should always invest in a commercial solution from a leading brand vendor.
