AVG Reliability and Security

AVG antivirus is a good entry-level solution, but not a powerful tool for the ultimate protection. It can resolve a limited range of tasks, but in general, it does its work well. Its effectiveness has repeatedly been proved by tests.

Thus, AV-Test Institute marked AVG with 6 out of 6 points for its usability, 6 points for malware protection, and 5.5 points for its performance. However, AV-Test which was conducted in June observed that AVG managed to stop 98.3 percent of zero-day attacks.

In the Real-World Protection Test conducted in November 2018 by AV-Comparatives, AVG demonstrated 100% effectiveness in blocking malicious programs and had 2 false positives. The summary result for the interim of July-November 2018 showed that AVG managed to block 99,6 percent of malware with the total of 10 false positives.

Also, AV-Comparatives granted AVG an Advanced+ rating with 3 out of 3 stars which is the highest result possible.

MRG-Effitas granted Level 2 certification to AVG in full spectrum analysis conducted in the first quarter of 2018. The result means that the minimum of one attacker managed to install but the antivirus took care of the problem within 24 hours.

Finally, in the tests of SE Labs AVG AntiVirus Free scored 94 percent for its ability to take care of malware after detecting it and handle sophisticated attacks which might be targeted on politicians, journalists, diplomats. And definitely, this is not the best result.
