Windows 8.1 antivirus winners and losers revealed


Security tester AV-Test has revealed the results of its first Windows 8.1 tests, ranking 25 antivirus protection suites against each other to discover which offer the best protection, performance and usability.

At the top of the pile came BitDefender and Kaspersky, scoring perfectly in all three categories. Both security suites, which require payment, received 18 out of 18. Avira Internet Security 2014 and F-Secure Internet Security were in hot pursuit, scoring 17.5 and 16 respectively.

Using Microsoft Windows Defender 4.3 as a baseline for comparison, AV Test enabled all default security features unless the security software itself turned them off. With no third-party antivirus protection running, Windows 8.1 Defender scored 11 out of 18.
