Detectia virusilor pe Android: Al doilea test comparativ pe 15 produse de securitate (by FaraVirusi.com)

UPDATE: Am adaugat rezultatele detectiei pentru Norton si Bluepoint — Norton and Bluepoint test results added.

For English version, please scroll down:

Am realizat al doilea test comparativ pe Android mai devreme decat ma asteptam. Fata de primul test in care utilizam 62 virusi, acum numarul lor a fost aproape triplu, crescand relevanta evaluarii detectiei.

In acest moment exista circa 600 de virusi pentru platforma Android. Numarul utilizatorilor de smartphone cu acest sistem de operare este in continua crestere, iar interesul este identic si din partea creatorilor de malware.

Am utilizat un set de 181 de aplicatii infectate (.apk) din perioada iulie-octombrie a.c. si am testat principalele 15 produse de securitate pentru Android.

Iata rezultatele detectiei:

  • Kaspersky* – 175 detectati (96.68%)
  • Dr.Web  – 171 detectati (94.47%)
  • IKARUS – 170 detectati (93.92%)
  • F-Secure* – 164 detectati (90.60%)
  • Zoner – 163 detectati (90.05%)
  • VIPRE** – 159 detectati (87.84%)
  • ESET** – 151 detectati (83.42%)
  • BitDefender* – 124 detectati (68.50%)
  • BullGuard* – 119 detectati (65.74%)
  • NetQin – 116 detectati (64.08%)
  • Webroot – 115 detectati (63.53%)
  • Trend Micro – 100 detectati (55.24%)
  • Bluepoint – 61 detectati (33.70%)
  • Norton – 60 detectati (33.14%)
  • McAfee* – 53 detectati (29.28%)
  • BlackBelt* – 41 detectati (22.65%)

In ceea ce priveste o solutie de securitate pentru telefon, detectia nu este singurul aspect de luat in seama.
Impactul asupra duratei de viata a bateriei este de asemenea foarte important, iar aici NetQin, BitDefender si Zoner Antivirus exceleaza. Produsele enumerate nu vor consuma mai mult de 1-2% din baterie.
Pe de alta parte Dr.Web, VIPRE si Lookout, alaturi de Webroot pot avea un impact mai mare asupra bateriei.

In al doilea rand, functiile oferite intr-o versiune gratuita sunt importante, iar cea de recuperare a unui telefon pierdut este la fel de importanta ca detectia antivirus. Aici NetQin si BitDefender abunda in optiuni si facilitati oferite fara niciun cost utilizatorilor, pornind de la antivirus, anti-lost, protectie web si chiar protectie impotriva interceptarilor telefonice,  backup si optimizarea sistemului.

In plus, nu vad in acest moment niciun motiv de a plati pentru o solutie de securitate pentru Android, avand in vedere ca cele gratuite se descurca foarte bine si ofera multe functii aditionale detectiei antivirus.
Totusi, daca doriti o asemenea investitie recomandarea noastra este Kaspersky, fara indoiala.

Pentru cei care nu considera utila investitia, recomandarile noastre in materie de protectie gratuita pentru telefonul tau Android sunt: Dr.Web si NetQin.
Una din recomandari merge spre Dr.Web, gratie detectiei foarte bune. In schimb nu ofera nimic in plus in versiunea gratuita, de aceea e discutabil daca sa-l instalati sau nu. A doua recomandare este NetQin pentru o detectie rezonabila si functii numeroase oferite. De asemenea, produsul ofera motor dual: clasic si cloud.

IKARUS este un produs nou, care nu ofera decat protectie antivirus si are anumite probleme de stabilitate. Zoner este putin cunoscut pe piata si este creat de un fost hacker (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2004/11/08/vxer_joins_av_zoner).

Note:

Produsele marcate cu * sunt contra cost, iar cele cu ** sunt inca in testare Beta.

1. Norton Mobile Security LITE nu este disponibil in Romania.
2. BitDefender, ESET si VIPRE sunt in stadiul de testare Beta, iar BitDefender va deveni produs cu plata din noiembrie.
3. Lookout si G Data nu ofera scanare la cerere pentru continutul cardului sau memoria telefonului.

 

 — English version:

At the moment there are about 600 viruses for the Android platform. The number of smartphone users with this operating system is growing and the interest is identical among the creators of malware.
Therefore, we decided to test 15 security products for Android in terms of malware detection. We’ve chosen the Android Market available products: those provided free or having a free trial.

We used a set of 181 infected applications (. APK) from July-October.

Here are the results of detection:

  • Kaspersky* – 175 (96.68%)
  • Dr.Web – 171 (94.47%)
  • IKARUS – 170 (93.92%)
  • F-Secure* – 164 (90.60%)
  • Zoner – 163 (90.05%)
  • VIPRE** – 159 (87.84%)
  • ESET** – 151 (83.42%)
  • BitDefender* – 124 (68.50%)
  • BullGuard* – 119 (65.74%)
  • NetQin – 116 (64.08%)
  • Webroot – 115 (63.53%)
  • Trend Micro – 100 (55.24%)
  • Bluepoint – 61 (33.70%)
  • Norton – 60 (33.14%)
  • McAfee* – 53 (29.28%)
  • BlackBelt* – 41 (22.65%)

In terms of phone security detection is not the only aspect taken into account.
Impact on battery life is also very important, and here NetQin, Zoner Antivirus and BitDefender excels. Products mentioned will not consume more than 1-2% of the battery.
On the other hand, Dr.Web, VIPRE and Lookout, and Webroot may have a high impact on the battery.
Second, features offered in a free version is important, and the recovery of a lost phone is as important as antivirus detection. Here NetQin and BitDefender abound in features and facilities offered at no cost to users: antivirus, anti-lost, web protection, even protection against eavesdroping, backup and system optimization.

In addition, in this moment I see no reason to pay for a security solution for Android, considering that free solutions are doing great.

However, if you want a paid solution, Kaspersky is our recommendation without any doubts.

For everybody else, our recommendations in terms of free protection for your Android phone are: Dr.Web and NetQin.

One of the recommendations go to Dr.Web, thanks to its very good detection rate. Instead, it offer no additional features in this free version, so it’s debatable whether you should install ir or not. A second recommendation is NetQin for its reasonable detection and for its abundancy of features. The product also offers a dual engine: classic and cloud.

IKARUS is a new product that offers only antivirus protection and has some stability issues. Zoner is less known on the market and it was created by a former hacker(http://www.theregister.co.uk/2004/11/08/vxer_joins_av_zoner).

Notes:

Products marked with a star (*) are paid, and those marked with two stars (**) are in Beta stage.

1. Norton Mobile Security LITE is not available in Romania.
2. BitDefender, ESET and VIPRE are in Beta testing stage, and BitDefender will be a paid product starting from November.
3. Lookout and G Data does not offer on-demand scan for memory card contents.
