ESET Smart Security (ESS)
ESET Smart Security is light and has good performance. The firewall may be easy to configure and use, but Matousec rates it second to last on its Firewall Challenge.
The Anti-Virus component was rated as "ADVANCED+" by AV-Comparatives and detected 97.6% of samples used.
Norman Security Suite (NSS)
Norman Security Suite's firewall is advanced (no Matousec review, though), but AV-Comparatives doesn't think it did a wonderful job. In its test it got 87.8% of the samples, and only 2 other anti-viruses missed more.
Kaspersky Internet Security (KIS) 2009
Kaspersky Internet Security is a bit high priced at $79.95, but it provides good all-round protection and is simple to use. There isn't much of a performance hit except in scans.
It has a web content filter - which will block most ads and inappropriate pictures - which is more than some suites can boast.
The anti-virus is not the best, but it isn't the worst either. It was right in the middle of AVs tested by AV-Comparatives. The same was true for Matousec's test of its firewall .
Overall, I'd rate KIS as average.
Verizon Internet Security Suite (VISS)
Verizon Internet Security Suite isn't too well known; I only learned about it recently. According to its review, it "provides anti-virus, anti-spyware, fraud protection as well as a firewall as its core services but also has a number of useful additional features such as Internet privacy, system maintenance and computer optimization".
But since it isn't that well known, neither Matousec nor AV-Comparatives has tests for it.
Outpost Security Suite (OSS) 2009
Outpost Security Suite 2009 is a combination of Outpost Firewall Pro and an anti-malware component. The firewall is ranked 4th best firewall by Matousec (interestingly, Outpost Firewall Free performed a bit better and was ranked 3rd). AV-Comparatives didn't have a test for it though.
ZoneAlarm Internet Security (ZIS)
ZoneAlarm Internet Security costs $49.95, a fair amount. Matousec last tested ZoneAlarm Pro 8, and that was rated "Good" but not recommended. ZIS may have improved the firewall over that time.
The anti-virus hasn't been tested by AV-Comparatives.
PC Tools Internet Security (PTIS)
PC Tools Internet Security costs $59.95 and is bundled with protection features some suites don't have. The main ones are the firewall, anti-virus/malware, and anti-spam. But it also has IntelliGuard which protects against changes to your system.
PC Tools Firewall Plus was rated "Very Good" by Matousec, though that isn't the latest version and PTIS may use a different firewall than Firewall Plus.
Quick Heal Total Security (QHTS)
Quick Heal Total Security costs $74 per year, which is a bit expensive. But it has a lot of features, maybe even the most of any suite mentioned here.
Matousec and AV-Comparatives don't have tests for it, as QHTS is less known than some others.
