Best overall detection in MRG on demand test
The MalwareResearchGroup has tested 15 well known antivirus products in April 2010. Objective of this test was to compare the on demand scanner capabilities of the participants with 259,694 malware samples that have been collected 60% in the last 3 months, and 40% in the 3 months before.
Here are the test results:
a-squared Anti-Malware and Online Armor ++ are sharing the first place and had exactly the same results. Which was expected, because both products are using the same scanner technology. Realtime analysis components like the behavior blocker of Anti-Malware had not been tested.
