F-Secure's solution provides users with 100 percent protection with also 100 percent effective against zero-day and known threats, and had only a slight effect on performance.
There were, however, a handful of false positives meaning that F-secure did lose out on a top rating from AV-Test.org.
However, this solution does provide access to multiple administrators via a centralised policy manager.
6. Symantec Endpoint Protection
Symantec offers perfect protection but does suffer minor affects on performance and usability. We like Symantec's business antivirus - a lot.
However, there were a handful of false positives in AV-Test's labs.
Symantec Endpoint Protection does provide a central management system and provides a relatively small download time.
However, this solution does require a sizable amount of RAM which should be part of the consideration process for businesses.
7. Sophos Endpoint Security and Control
Sophos Endpoint Security and Control scored well under AV-test.orgtesting with perfect protection and usability ratings. It did stumble on performance, however.
The Sophos dashboard is sometimes sluggish and web filtering often slow. But in terms of protection, this product cannot be faulted.
8. Intel's McAfee Endpoint Security
McAfee produces a business-focused antivirus that offers perfect usability and near perfect protection. This solution does lose a point in performance and recorded one false positive during AV-Test.orgtesting.
McAfee Endpoint Security boasts excellent dashboards and enviable screen reports.
However, like Symantec the solution does consume a lot of RAM so making sure your PC is capable of running McAfee is vital.
9. G Data antivirus business
G Data's antivirus Business offers great protection, but in AV-Test's lab it allowed a tiny fraction of zero-day threats to slip through.
In tests, G Data encountered the odd false positive but suffered the most snags in performance with a slow five second influence on computer speed, against the industry average of two seconds.
But don't let that put you off! This is still a great product that provides good protection at a an affordable price.
10. Seqrite Endpoint Security
Definitely worth your consideration, Seqrite's product for business does let itself down in performance with an eight second average computer speed (against industry average of two seconds), but does scores full marks in usability.
Seqrite provides detailed reports and a good safe browsing function but can be sluggish and slow down your PC.
