Bitdefender wins Anti-Virus Test while Microsoft AV Failed Certification

Interesting Anti-Virus news from AV-Test labs this week. Every two months AV-Labs puts Anti-Virus programs through the paces and scores them on how well they detect, protect and remove anti-viruses. One of our favorite Anti-Virus programs, Bitdefender won the contest again this month, while surprisingly Microsoft’s Security Essentials failed to be certified.

BitDefender won by earning 17 out of 18 points:

AV-Test Bitdefender

With a perfect score in Protection and Repair.

Microsoft, which missed the certification cut-off of 11 points, earned 10.5 points:

AV-Test Microsoft

Scoring only a 1.5 in protection and 3.5 in repair.

So how well did your favorite Anti-Virus make out?

Check out the full report.
