Why TM scores poorly in AV Comparatives?

On each and every test , TM scores very poorly , around 97%. 

Why is that and why no improvements????

Hi @claudiubotezatu,

We are very sorry for the late response.

The reason that Trend Micro's score is low compared to other Antivirus in the AV Comparatives is that the samples used in the AV Comparatives Malware Protection Test include both recent in-the-wild malware and also aging malware that has not been seen in the last 6 months and older. Those missed samples are inactive or dormant in-the-wild malware which has been dropped from our detection patterns.

 

With this said, we are more focused on real user detection whereas the AV Comparatives Malware Protection Test focuses on malware protection.

Hope this helps!

@tm_vlad​ 

your explanation contradicts AV-Comparatives statement:

"The test set used for this test consisted of 10,053 malware samples, assembled after consulting telemetry data with the aim of including recent, prevalent samples that are endangering users in the field.

The sample collection process was stopped mid of February 2024. All products were installed on a fully up-to-date 64-Bit Microsoft Windows 10 system. Products were tested at the beginning of March with default settings and using their latest updates."

Additionally, 6 month old malwares are not considered "dormant" by any antivirus on the market; all AVs tested scored significantly better than TM,

including the free Windows Defender.
