The article is devoted to the problem of information security, namely the study of the characteristics of antivirus programs which are standardized in Ukraine. The study used statistical methods to analyze the characteristics of antivirus software and comparative methods of comparing the various types of such programs. Relying on researches in scientific literature, the main threats to information security in the field of information technology were analyzed. The emphasis is placed on the fact that antivirus software is the most effective protection against malicious software (malware). The basic methods of work of the antivirus – signature and heuristic – are described. The list of standardized in Ukraine antivirus programs is determined. The study was based on the quantitative and qualitative results which while testing had obtained by the independent testing laboratory AV-Comparatives (Austria), the independent Virus Bulletin (VB) laboratory for testing and certification in the field of security, the Center for antivirus protection information of the State Special Communication Service of Ukraine. The comparative analysis of the main characteristics of antivirus programs was carried out, namely: antivirus and anti-spyware; anti-phishing; anti-rootkit protection against exploits; Intrusion Prevention System; Real-time protection; parental control; host-based firewall; antispam; protection against network attacks; home network protection; anti-theft; password management.
