Antivirus Comparison Chart

Picking the right antivirus (AV) software program is no easy task. The factors to consider include the number of devices you want to protect, what features are the most important and whether the program will consume too much system resources. It’s also essential to avoid false positives — programs that do not correctly identify and block safe programs. There are numerous trusted programs that are more affordable than others.

Our antivirus comparison chart offers an easy overview of the aggregated scores for protection, performance, and False Positives based on independent lab tests. You can filter the results to find specific antivirus software by name, or look at alternatives according to a range of criteria. Included are the cost, the number of devices that are protected and, if applicable an annual subscription fee.

Some of the most well-known names in the AV industry include Avast, AVG, ESET and Trend Micro. Avast offers a well-known free antivirus program, and AVG offers a subscription service with a variety of additional features. ESET is a remarkably powerful set of tools that includes network protections, which are normally included in more expensive AV tools. Some users are concerned about the recent scandal surrounding data sharing and marketing.

Trend Micro is another well-known name that is renowned for its top-of-the-line Mac malware detection. The company’s anti-virus software is fairly inexpensive and its Internet Security Maximum Security adds the ability to manage passwords and a secure file vault.
