AV-Comparatives OS X Product test

AV-Comparatives has released its 2015 OS X review/test report, comparing 10 products. Its remit is far wider than the malware protection test (consisting of 105 samples that OS X Yosemite doesn’t or didn’t block), including:

  • Operating systems supported
  • Additional features  a firewall or anti-phishing capability
  • Installation/deinstallation options and issues.
  • Interface aspects and issues
  • Operating system integration
  • Whether a user with a standard user account can disable the protection.
  • Scanning options
  • The quality of the help facilities.

Unusually, the type of alert shown when the EICAR test file and various features on the AMTSO Security Features pages are accessed.

On a quick scan, it looks like AV-Comparatives has done its usual thorough job.
