Avira wins Test by AV-comparatives

The test laboratory av-comparatives.org has published the results of their August roundup of antivirus solutions. Avira clearly leads in the field of malware detection. The testers thus rated Avira AntiVir with Advanced+, their highest certification level. The combined score for detection of 2.3 million malware samples was 99.6 percent, which is a clear first place, as well as the 99.2 percent in the Test Set B, which consists of more than 1 million malware samples from the past 9 months. The few false positives are subject to our ongoing development and will be ironed out soon, too.

This test proves once more that Avira products deliver the best available protection on the market. And that at a scanning speed that av-comparatives rates with “fast”! We are very proud to be rated Advanced+!
