For the 11th time in a row, Sophos Mobile Security has received a perfect 100% protection score in the May 2016 edition of AV-TEST’s “The best antivirus software for Android” comparison, after successfully detecting all of the 3,300+ samples used.
We also scored 6.0 out of 6.0 for “usability,” which includes both performance and false positives (of which we had none). You can read the full test results here.
This is the eleventh straight 100% result for Sophos in AV-TEST’s Antivirus for Android shoot-out. While other products put up similar results in the current test, no other vendor comes close to sporting such a long track record of 100% detection scores. AV-TEST recognized this earlier this year by giving its Best Protection 2015 award to Sophos Mobile Security.
