Respected research firm NSS Labs conducted a study on the effectiveness of the most popular antivirus software.

As it turned out, of the 13 tested solutions only two products were able to block more than 80% of the known exploits. This is rather alarming result as antivirus vendors usually promise complete protection from known threats.

According to the results of comparative testing, package Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 blocked 92.2% of known threats, but the package Alwil Avast Pro Antivirus 7, which became the second most effective, managed to overcome a 81.9%. The third in this test was a package Symantec Norton Internet Security 19 (74.1%), fourth place went to package AVG Internet Security 2012 (73.3%), and the fifth – a package of ESET Smart Security 5 (70.7%).
