5. Trend Micro Internet Security 2015
With such a good performance and the lower asking price, Trend Internet Security 2015 represents very good value, even though it misses out on certain extras offered by some of its competition.
4. Bitdefender Total Security 2015
Bitdefenderis consistently among the best IS suites we’ve tested and also provides the best AV protection, according to AV-Test. There are a few small chinks in its armour, though. The syncing process, by which it backs up designated files and folders is by no means clear and 2 GB of storage for a 3-PC package is downright mean. We’d want to check why the anti-theft feature places us in South Yorkshire, too.
3. Avast Free Antivirus 2015
Avast Free Antivirus 2015 is one of the best free security products you can install. It offers a surprising range of free goodies, including application and browser app analysis and, separately, an excellent Android suite, covering AV and anti-theft. A better than average AV-Test rating completes a very impressive picture.
2. Bitdefender Internet Security 2015
This is one of the very best AV suites available, in terms of outright protection against malware. It’s also very good at not throwing up false warnings, but there are other products offering more auxiliary modules for the money.
1. Symantec Norton Security with Backup
Offering excellent value with 10 licences to cover all your devices, Norton Security with Backup also offers a strong feature set and very good protection from viruses and other malware. Recommended.
