AV-TEST: Kaspersky is the best anti-virus for Windows 7

The test evaluates protection, performance and usability. Windows 7 continues to work on over 45% of desktop PCs worldwide, in many companies that still refrain from switching to Windows 10 due to the complexity of migration to the new operating system.
This makes the security of a number of business systems a key issue. A new study by the independent organization AV-TEST assesses the performance of antivirus solutions for 64-bit Windows 7 SP1. There are no surprises in the experts' final judgments - Kaspersky is again being developed by the Russian Kaspersky Lab security company, which has recently faced serious problems in the United States. Kaspersky heads the AV-TEST rating, collecting the maximum of 18 points in the security, performance, and ease of use tests. This means that the Russian antivirus runs seamlessly on each of the three tests. Bitdefender's corporate solution, which collects a total of 17.7 points, a little bit behind Kasperski, is also very good, as a result of its lower rating - 5.5 points in the usability test.
Below are Symantec, Sophos and Seqrite, who receive 17 points. Each of the three products loses 0.5 points in the performance and usability tests, but excels in the test for protection. Last but not least, the Microsoft AntiVirus is the one that picks up modest 14 points - 5 points for performance and protection and only 4 for usability. This result raises the issue of the need for an external antivirus solution to protect corporate systems that are still running Windows 7. Microsoft will suspend support for Windows 7 in January 2020, so organizations still using this operating system are planning to migrate to a newer version to secure their computers even if they do not have an external solution.
