AV-TEST security researchers have published October test results for the best Windows 10 antivirus.
In the results we also saw some surprises to be mentioned below. This survey was conducted in September and October of 2018 and as usual showed our names in the top positions.
For example, the maximum rating of 18 units was achieved by Avira Antivirus Pro, Bitdefender Internet Security, BullGuard Internet Security, Kaspersky Internet Security, Microworld eScan Internet Security Suite, and Symantec's Norton Security.
But certainly, one did not expect applications from BullGuard and Microworld to take the lead with Kaspersky and Bitdefender. However, according to the AV-TEST testing, the products of the companies had six grades for each of the three trials evaluating protection, usability and performance.
The worst performance for the past month was Malwarebytes Premium. The application had 4 degrees in protection, 5 grades in performance and 4,5 degrees in usability. Overall it took 13,5 points.

For Windows Defender now, which is of interest to us all as it comes preinstalled on Windows 10, the performance of the application has been quite impressive. The Microsoft program had a total score of 17 points with 5,5 points for protection, 5,5 points for performance and 6 points for usability.
This is the second time Windows Defender gets close to the top security products on the market, and if it retains it, it could become the only and only Windows security app, which may mean this for other manufacturers.
