AV-Comparatives recently released its round-up of the best security software for 2017 in two categories: anti-phishing and parental controls. It also released a breakdown of 15 free vs. paid antivirus solutions.
Of the test, four security solutions passed the AV-Comparatives’ anti-phishing challenge for 2017, and three made it past the company’s parental controls tests.
Why this matters: Reports from an independent testing organization like AV-Comparatives are important for the average PC user. With so many security solutions available, it’s difficult to know which ones perform well and are worth your money. Results from AV-Comparatives and others like AV-Test can help in that process for those willing to deal with a small bit of research.
