As part of its ongoing Consumer Main-Test Series, AV-Comparatives has released 
the results of its July to October 2022 Real-World Protection Test for consumer 
security solutions. 17 popular anti-malware programs were evaluated to assess 
their protection against Internet-borne threats.

The Real-World Protection Test conducted by AV-Comparatives mimics real-world 
conditions as experienced every day by users. The test accurately determined if 
each threat used was able to make any changes to the test system. To ensure 
that security programs do not confuse users with false alarms, AV-Comparatives 
also put all the products through a false-positives test. Programs with high 
levels of false alarms had their award levels reduced.

A total of 10 products reached the highest award level, ADVANCED+, in this 
Real-World Protection Test. These were (in alphabetical order): Avast, AVG, 
Avira, Bitdefender, G Data, K7, Kaspersky, Microsoft, McAfee, VIPRE.
