avast! in the AV-Comparatives Security Survey 2011
The AV-Comparatives Security Survey 2011 (pdf) released by AV-Comparatives.org in mid-March reveals that, from a list of 70 well-known security solutions, avast! ranks second in terms of which products respondents wish to continue to see reviewed.
Notably, 5 of the top-7 requested brands are based in Central and Eastern Europe.
Respondents were also asked which features and other aspects they find most important in a security product. The top 3 responses were:
- Good detection rate of malicious files (without cloud)
- Good generic detection / heuristic (without cloud)
- Low impact on system performance
