Performance Test evaluates the impact of anti-virus software on system performance, as programs running in background

AV-Comparatives has released the results of their April Test, which evaluates the impact different security products have on systems performance.

While security is far more important than speed, it is still important to gauge which products will slow your overall system down. As users intend to operate normally while keeping their network and OS protected, having a product which interferes with speed and performance can be incredibly frustrating.

The products evaluated by AV-Comparatives for its performance test include Avast Free , AVG Free Antivirus, Avira Prime, Bitdefender Internet Security, ESET Internet Security, G Data Total Security, K7 Total Security, Kaspersky Internet Security, Malwarebytes Premium, McAfee Total Protection, Microsoft Defender, NortonLifeLock North 360 Deluxe, Panda Free Antivirus, TotalAV Antivirus Pro, Total Defense Essential Antivirus, Trend Micro Internet Security and VIPRE Advanced Security.
