Based On Analysis These Are The Top Android Antivirus Tools Of The Year, Both For Business And Basic Users

Using antivirus software has become increasingly important in this modern day and age. With hacks and other attacks from malicious actors on the rise, people have become more cognizant of the perils of not having adequate protection, and this has resulted in them trying to figure out what the best antiviruses are for them to use. As the year draws to a close, we now have a better idea of which antiviruses might work out for you in the long run.

Business owners are especially concerned about cyber attacks so they often have a stricter set of rules for whatever software they want to end up using in any kind of capacity. There are several antivirus programs that stood out this year, namely ESET and Total Defense. According to AV-Test, they both scored a full six out of six possible points in both the performance and usability category, and they also got 5.5 out of 6 each in the protection category which means that the protection they provide is about as good as it gets.

Dr. Web is another good option, but with all of that having been said and now out of the way it is important to note that it didn’t do as well in the protection category getting only 4 out of 6. However, it got the full 6 points in usability and performance, and 4 out of 6 is still decent enough to afford you a baseline level of protection against various types of digital threats that might want to harm the viability of your business.

Google (and its own Android security system) is a bit of an outlier here. It did even better than ESET and Total Defense in the Protection category, becoming the only antivirus to get a full 6 out of 6 in this regard, and it also got 6 points in the performance category. However, it got 0 out of 6 when it came to usability, so while it might protect you from digital threats it is an exceedingly difficult software to use and this makes it a little less than ideal when compared to ESET and Total Defense.

Google fared similarly when looked at from the lens of general antiviruses for regular Android users too (though, AVTest called this category Home users). Quite a few antiviruses got full marks in this category with sixes across the board. These include Avast, AVG, Bitdefender, G Data, Kaspersky, Norton LifeLock, securiON and Trend Micro. All of these antiviruses have managed to perfect the art of digital defense and any one of them would be great for you if you are an Android user that does not have any specific or advanced cybersecurity needs with all things having been considered and taken into account.

There are a few other options that you can check out too if you so choose. McAfee is a popular option, but it lost a point in the usability category and only received 5 out of 6 points due to the reason that it tends to slow people’s computers down to the point where they may just end up becoming unusable. That is a really big problem and it shows just how essential it is to opt for an antivirus that prioritizes usability as well as the various other qualities that we have discussed above.

The prevalence of digital attacks and their increasingly sophisticated nature means that not having an antivirus on your Android phone is no longer acceptable. Businesses are even more vulnerable in this regard and they need to focus on using antiviruses that are capable of meeting their needs. Checking out the performance of various antivirus software is a really great way to ascertain their efficacy so that you can be certain that they would keep any and all threats at bay for the foreseeable future and allow you to feel secure.
