      by Sayan Sen

      via AV-TEST (Twitter) AV-TEST, the IT Security research institute based in Germany, released its October 2021 best anti-virus programs assessment report for Windows 10 home users. In this report, the organization took a look at 21 different anti-malware programs from various companies and the test also included Microsoft's Windows Defender.

      Very much to the delight of Microsoft surely, Windows Defender has scored very highly in this assessment. In fact, it is one of the very best available today scoring the full 18 points available. Hence it has received the "AV-TEST TOP PRODUCT" certification as it has scored higher than 17.5 points in total.

      However, it is not alone at the top and other security programs like Avira, AVAST, AVG, Bitdefender, ESET, and others, have also received this seal of approval. The remainder of the products have scored below 17.5 points and have hence received the "AV-TEST Certified" badge.

      The full score of 18 points in the test constitutes three categories of a maximum of six points each. These categories are:

      You can finally replace your traditional antivirus, thanks to a innovative and layered approach to prevent malware infections using a healthy combination of proactive and signature-less technologies.
