Quick Heal Total Security scored a perfect rating of 6/6 for protection and performance, and a near-perfect score of 5.5/6 for its usability.
The AV-TEST report highlights that Quick Heal Total Security demonstrated a 100% protection against 0-day malware attacks, inclusive of web and e-mail threats vis-à-vis an industry average of 98%.
