SUMMARY

This survey about IT security reveals that Avast, Bitdefender, ESET, Kaspersky Lab and Microsoft are the five most popular desktop security products across the globe.

According to the results, Kaspersky Lab is the most popular mobile security solution while Bitdefender and ESET are the only two found among the top three on each continent.

Android is the most popular mobile operating system as it is the system used by a large majority of respondents. iOS is the only other mobile OS that reaches double figures.

The document shows that most users were well protected in the last half-year and did not suffer a malware infection over that time. On the other hand, 35% of respondents indicated that their security product had blocked malware in the last week.

Besides, the number of users who rely on free desktop security software represents 44% of respondents - higher than in previous years. On the contrary, there has been a decrease in the number of users that do not have an antivirus software - the figure goes down to 0.5%.

Just less than 50% of users use a Virtual Private Network (VPN). But in the cases of Iran, UAE, Iraq, and China, at least 75% of respondents deploy a VPN.

The report also reveals that Google Chrome is the most popular browser. Around half of respondents use it, followed by Mozilla Firefox. According to the survey, Microsoft Edge is only used by a much lower percentage of users, one in 20 of users overall.
