Reviews of Best Antivirus (2018)

  • Comodo Antivirus Reviews
  • Avast Antivirus Reviews
  • McAfee Antivirus Reviews
  • Kaspersky Antivirus Reviews

Comodo Antivirus

The impressive security features of our antivirus – Default Deny Approach, Viruscope, Containment, HIPS etc., – put it right at the top of the list. Much of this technology (especially Default Deny Approach and Viruscope) is unique to us and helps you fight modern-day malware and zero-day exploits successfully. Moreover, it the cheapest security product available in the industry (refer table above) which can be purchased for just $ 27.99! Hence the No.1 spot.

Features That Grab Your Attention:

  • Default Deny Approach – defense technique unique to and developed by Comodo which allows unknown files or applications (whether malicious or not) to access your computers only after they prove themselves to be harmless, by running them in separate containers, without allowing them to affect your PC(s).
  • Viruscope – another technology unique to Comodo which empowers users to undo unauthorized or suspicious actions within your PC(s). Highly effective against modern-day malware which can escape the clutches of any given security system and infect your devices.
  • Containment – this technique perfectly complements the Default Deny Approach by containing (or restraining) unknown files or applications from affecting PC(s) by isolating and running them in a separate container, until they prove themselves to be harmless.
  • Cloud-Based Instant Malware Analysis: Unrecognized files or applications which are not available in Comodo’s whitelist will be sent to Comodo Instant Malware Analysis (CIMA) server for behavior analysis, where the file will be thoroughly tested for any malicious activity before it is granted access to your PC(s).
  • Virus Removal Service: Comodo also offers virus removal service at a rather modest cost. So if PC users are infected with the virus and other such malware, they can get their PC(s) repaired in no time by making use of the malware removal service which is a part of Comodo Internet Security (CIS).

Avast Antivirus

Any antivirus reviews list would be incomplete without AVAST in it. Because it’s been around a long time and is probably the most installed antivirus product in the world. No doubt, it is a strong contender for the No. 1 spot.

Features That Grab Your Attention:

  • Vulnerability Scanner: to detect previously unknown security threats.
  • Powerful Anti-spam: which effectively prevents spamming.
  • Real-Time Protection: for files, email, web surfing, P2P transfers etc.,
  • Quick Clean Up: which ensures PC(s) stay malware-free.

McAfee Antivirus

Another established name in the industry which simply cannot be ignored. But it does have a drawback. It a bit high-priced when compared to the rest of the industry, especially with our Comodo which is available for as little as $ 27.99! Something which makers of McAfee have to think about.

Features That Grab Your Attention:

  • Heuristic Engine: to detect previously unknown security threats.
  • Home Network Security Feature: which can scan your
  • Real-Time Protection: for files, email, web surfing, P2P transfers etc.,
  • Regular Updates: which ensure evolving malware is dealt with properly.

Kaspersky Antivirus

Though US government has officially banned Kaspersky, it’s still in very much in business and is one of the best antivirus software around. Containing various industry standard security features, Kaspersky occupies the last place in our antivirus reviews list.

Features That Grab Your Attention:

  • File Encryption: to ensure files stay protected against hacking.
  • Advanced Firewall: which ensures the incoming and outgoing traffic is regulated.
  • Support for Mac & Android: not only Windows but other devices are covered too.
  • System Optimizer: which ensures system performance does not go down.

Of course, there are many other antivirus products, most of them good enough. But we didn’t mention them in our antivirus reviews because we don’t want you to burden with too many details. You have seen what the top level antivirus products contain and you know what sets Comodo apart from the rest, making it the best in the security industry. So you know what to do now.
