AVG Internet Security Scores Highly On VB100 Test

I subscribe to a newsletter called the Virus Bulletin, and earlier in August they sent out the results of their latest lab test of 54 for the most popular anti-malware products on the market.  You can see the results here.  The Reactive and Proactive Quadrant shown in the article rates a products ability to react to known virus and malware attacks, as well as its ability to proactively deal with unknown or new threats, based on technologies such as behavior detection and analysis.

AVG had an impressive 94% score on the Reactive scale, and a respectable 70% rating on the Proactive Scale.  Only 5 other products were rated higher on both scales.  So once again AVG scores as one of the best all-around computer security products.

Here at WyzGuys we are AVG Silver Partners.  We use it ourselves, and recommend it to all of our business clients. In addition to its superior anti-virus and anti-malware detection and eradication abilities, we still find it to have a low impact on processor and memory usage, and overall system performance.  We know that some of the more highly rated products tend to use more system resources and slow down the performance of your computer.  Please contact us for more information.
