5 PassMark Software conducted objective performance testing on fourteen (14) Internet Security software products, sixteen (16) Antivirus software products, and five (5) Total Security software products on Windows 7 Ultimate Edition (64-bit) SP1 between July 2012 and February This report presents our results and findings as a result of performance benchmark testing conducted for these consumer security products. Subsequent editions of this report will include new products released for 2013 as they are made available. For more details on which versions were tested, please see the section Products and Versions. Note that throughout this report, categories marked with (HDD) and (SSD) were tested with a Hard Disk Drive and a Solid State Drive used as the main boot drive respectively. Testing was performed on all products using seventeen (17) performance metrics. These performance metrics are as follows: Boot Time; Scan Time; User Interface Launch Time; Memory Usage during System Idle; Browse Time; Internet Explorer Launch Time; Installation Time; Installation Size; Registry Keys Added; File Copy, Move and Delete; Installation of Third Party Applications; Network Throughput (previously named Binary Download Test ) File Format Conversion; File Compression and Decompression; File Write, Open and Close; PE Scan Time and; and File Copy Disk to Disk. Testing in the SSD configuration was performed on five (5) Internet Security products using four (4) of the above metrics. These performance metrics are as follows: Boot Time; Scan Time; File Copy, Move and Delete; and File Copy Disk to Disk. Performance Benchmark Page 5 of 70

11 We have selected a set of objective metrics which provide a comprehensive and realistic indication of the areas in which an antivirus may impact system performance for end users. Our metrics test the impact of the antivirus software on common tasks that end-users would perform on a daily basis. All of PassMark Software s test methods can be replicated by third parties using the same environment to obtain similar benchmark results. Detailed descriptions of the methodologies used in our tests are available as Appendix 2 Methodology Description of this report. This metric measures the amount of time taken for the machine to boot into the operating system. Security software is generally launched at Windows startup, adding an additional amount of time and delaying the startup of the operating system. Shorter boot times indicate that the application has had less impact on the normal operation of the machine. All antivirus solutions have functionality designed to detect viruses and various other forms of malware by scanning files on the system. This metric measured the amount of time required to scan a set of clean files. Our sample file set comprised a total file size of 982 MB and was made up of files that would typically be found on end-user machines, such as media files, system files and Microsoft Office documents. This metric provides an objective indication as to how responsive a security product appears to the user, by measuring the amount of time it takes for the user interface of the antivirus software to launch from Windows. To allow for caching effects by the operating system, both the initial launch time and the subsequent launch times were measured. Our final result is an average of these two measurements. This metric measures the amount of memory (RAM) used by the product while the machine and antivirus software are in an idle state. The total memory usage was calculated by identifying all antivirus software processes and the amount of memory used by each process. The amount of memory used while the machine is idle provides a good indication of the amount of system resources being consumed by the antivirus software on a permanent basis. Better performing products occupy less memory while the machine is idle. It is common behavior for security products to scan data for malware as it is downloaded from the internet or intranet. This behavior may negatively impact browsing speed as products scan web content for malware. This metric measures the time taken to browse a set of popular internet sites to consecutively load from a local server in a user s browser window. Performance Benchmark Page 11 of 70

12 This metric is one of many methods to objectively measure how much a security product impacts on the responsiveness of the system. This metric measures the amount of time it takes to launch the user interface of Internet Explorer 8. To allow for caching effects by the operating system, both the initial launch time and the subsequent launch times were measured. Our final result is an average of these two measurements. The speed and ease of the installation process will strongly influence the user s first impression of the antivirus software. This test measures the minimum installation time required by the antivirus software to be fully functional and ready for use by the end user. Lower installation times represent antivirus products which are quicker for a user to install. In offering new features and functionality to users, antivirus software products tend to increase in size with each new release. Although new technologies push the size limits of hard drives each year, the growing disk space requirements of common applications and the increasing popularity of large media files (such as movies, photos and music) ensure that a product's installation size will remain of interest to home users. This metric aims to measure a product s total installation size. This metric is defined as the total disk space consumed by all new files added during a product's installation. A large registry increases a machine s use of resources. This may negatively impact system performance, especially on much older machines. This test measures the amount of keys and values added to registry, after rebooting the test machines, following a successful product installation. Lower numbers mean that a product has added fewer keys during installation and had less impact on the registry. This metric measures the amount of time taken to move, copy and delete a sample set of files. The sample file set contains several types of file formats that a Windows user would encounter in daily use. These formats include documents (e.g. Microsoft Office documents, Adobe PDF, Zip files, etc), media formats (e.g. images, movies and music) and system files (e.g. executables, libraries, etc). This metric measures the amount of time taken to install and uninstall third party programs. The installation speed of third party applications may be impacted by antivirus behavior such as heuristics or real time malware scanning. The metric measures the amount of time taken to download a variety of files from a local server using the HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP), which is the main protocol used on the web for browsing, linking and data transfer. Files used in this test include file formats that users would typically download from the web, such as images, archives, music files and movie files. Performance Benchmark Page 12 of 70

13 This test measures the amount of time taken to convert an MP3 file to a WAV and subsequently, convert the same MP3 file to a WMA format. This metric measures the amount of time taken to compress and decompress different types of files. Files formats used in this test included documents, movies and images. This benchmark was derived from Oli Warner s File I/O test at (please see Reference #1: What Really Slows Windows Down). This metric measures the amount of time taken to write a file, then open and close that file. All antivirus solutions have functionality designed to detect viruses and various other forms of malware by scanning files on the system. This metric measured the amount of time required to scan a set of PE (Portable Executable) files. Our sample file set comprised a total file size of 2.03GB and consisted of.exe (329MB),.dll (920MB) and.sys files (827MB). This test measures the amount of time taken to copy files between two local drives. The data set comprised a total file size of 5.44GB, and the formats used included documents, movies, images and executables. Performance Benchmark Page 13 of 70
