The AV-Test institute is an independent organization that evaluates and rates antivirus software solutions, benchmarking them against various criteria. These evaluations are run for Windows and Android operating systems.

During January and February 2017, AV-Test evaluated Quick Heal Total Security for Windows. Here are the results:

Category A:
Protection against malware threats.


0-day malware attacks
A 0-day attack is when an unknown security vulnerability gets exploited by an attacker before it gets fixed. Because there is no sufficient time to address the vulnerability before its gets exploited, it is called a zero-day threat.

Category B:
Average influence of the product on computer speed in daily usage.


Category C:
Impact of the security software on the usability of the whole computer (lower values indicate better results).


As seen in the results for all the three categories, Quick Heal Total Security (Windows) has scored well against the industry average.
