Key Specs

    Antivirus, AntiSpyware, AntiMalware, AntiRootkit, Parental control, two-way
    Firewall, Browser Sandbox, Password protection

Pros: Good all round protection

Cons: High memory consumption, Lack of some crucial feature

Bottomline: Protection is very good but memory consumption is high, so either if your system has 3 or 4GB of RAM or you don’t use your system for heavy usage, then this could be a good option for you.

Quick Heal Internet security has got a good strong Antivirus, AntiSpyware, AntiMalware, AntiRootkit, Parental control, two-way Firewall and IDS/IPS. Among other features, there is a Browser Sandbox which can give you an uninterrupted and secure browsing experience. It provides Internet security protection by acting like a screen between the PC's operating system and the
malicious threats. Keeping these things aside, there could be some enhancements to the feature-set, which should include website/URL advisor, cloud storage/online backup, system maintenance tool, social networking protection and integrated mobile security solution. 

There was no special requirement as far as installation of the product is concerned. Home screen of QuickHeal is broadly divided in three subsections. At the top, there is a banner strip, indicating the security status of the system. Just below that, there are four tiles showing four different feature capabilities of Quick Heal. And at the bottom right, you will find an option for scanning. The IS tool took about an hour to scan our 250 MB test folder containing 27,000+ files, which is slightly long. Also, during the scanning process, the security software used up about 190 MB of primary memory. It was the highest
amount of memory consumption of all security suites used in this shootout.
The Quick Heal security blocked all eight files of EICAR. And it blocked 20
out of 25 zero day malicious websites, which is again a positive result.
