Comodo should try to get a higher rank if they do this test again.

Thanks for the link. Indeed Andrei1997. I would like to see Comodo next to Avast.

IKARUS mobile security and F-Secure mobile security… Total surprise… :-TU

In fact, that’s an old version they tested.
The latest version has been tested by avtest.
The report will be published soon. :smiley:

From http://www.av-test.org/en/tests/mobile-devices/android/

"The best products in our tests (with detection rates of 90% and above) come from the following top 10 companies, listed in alphabetic order: Avast, Dr. Web, F-Secure, Ikarus, Kaspersky, Lookout, McAfee, MYAndroid Protection/MYMobile Security, NQ Mobile/NetQin and Zoner. Users of products made by these companies can be assured that they are protected against malware.

Products with a detection rate of between 65% and 90% can also be considered to be very good and have the potential to join the group of best products above if small changes are made to the set of malware tested. Some of these products only fail to detect just one or two malware families that may not even be prevalent in certain environments. The following 13 products, listed in alphabetic order, fall into this category: AegisLab, AVG Mobilation, Bitdefender, BullGuard, Comodo, ESET, Norton/Symantec, QuickHeal, Super Security, Total Defense, Trend Micro, Vipre/GFI and Webroot."

This is the summary of avtest 2012 Feb.
The latest has not been published yet

There is something new:
"In January 2013, AV-TEST starts with regular (bi-monthly) reviews of Android security products, with the first publication of results in February 2013. Internal tests with over 20 Apps are already running to check our testing methodology for the comprehensive malware blocking, false positives, performance and feature tests.

Some interesting facts: the average malware detection rate was just 91%, with the worst product scoring only 61% and the best performance is at around 99%. False positives are not a common problem so far, only one product hit the 1% checkmark (out of about 200 clean apps tested).

In many cases, the performance impact is not noticable, but some tools showed a huge battery drain and required a lot of processing power during real-world usage (e.g. browsing through websites, reading documents, or watching videos). We’re speaking about differences of up to 30%! Anyway, AV-TEST wants to emphasis that the majority of the Apps have an impact of 2% (or less) on the overall system performance."

The REST OF THE PAGE is out of date 8)

Battery impact will have to be lowered, as 2% is high. Many will choose to remove them, favouring battery over possible infection.

CMS on my phone has been exceptional with respect to battery usage.

I don’t have a smartphone but I do use my Nexus 7 tablet frequently. I tried CMS but it just is not very well adapted to a tablet so I went back to Avast which works pretty good on both phones and tablets. I don’t need or use the anti-theft features since the tablet never leaves the house and I don’t use the firewall because it requires rooting the device. Something I don’t want to do. Is there any part of CMS that requires the device to be rooted?
