Anti-Phishing test: security products published passing the 2021 test

Every year we publish the results of our phishing protection certification test. These tests evaluate the protection provided against phishing websites. These deceptive websites can pose a real threat to Internet users, as they attempt to steal sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details.
 
AV-Comparatives releases reports of certified anti-phishing products

Seven popular security products for Windows approved for protection against fraudulent websites

ISO-certified independent security testing lab AV-Comparatives has released details of its 2021 anti-phishing certification tests. Phishing is a means of stealing confidential user login data, giving attackers access to the victims’ accounts. It involves creating fraudulent copies of e.g. Internet banking websites, and tricking users into logging into them by means of spoofed emails that claim to be from the respective bank.

Many antivirus and Internet security products offer phishing protection. Should the user accidentally click on a link to a phishing website, the page should be blocked and a warning shown to the user.

AV-Comparatives evaluated 9 submitted Windows products against more than 250 phishing URLs. To be certified, a product had to detect and block at least 85% of these. To ensure that the security programs do not provide protection at the expense of false alarms, a false-positives test was also carried out. Products had to demonstrate that they do not block any legitimate sites such as Internet banking websites.

Of the nine Windows products tested this year, seven were certified. These are, in alphabetical order: Avast Free Antivirus, AVG Free Antivirus, Bitdefender Internet Security, ESET Internet Security, Fortinet FortiClient, Kaspersky Internet Security, and Trend Micro Internet Security.

For further details of the test and the individual scores obtained, please see https://www.av-comparatives.org/news/ant...test-2021/. Like all AV-Comparatives, these test reports are accessible to everyone free of charge.
