The tests rated the best Windows antivirus software for home and business users. All providers were rated based on three main categories: protection, performance, and usability.
In both consumer and company ratings, ESET solutions scored a perfect 6 in the protection category. This measures protection against malware such as viruses, worms and Trojans.
