How are TSA Scores determined?
The Software Authority strives to be different! Our results are based on factual data and you will never see a non-certified product that you never heard of being rated highly for the sole purpose of pushing sales like we often see on other review sites.
With increasing computer processor speeds being able to handle heavy workloads and improving performance significantly, TSA Scores are focused more on how well a security product protects your system from malware, viruses, and threats as opposed to how much system impact does this security product have. Reality is, if you obtain a nasty Ransomware virus as an example, does having a product that uses limited computer resources matter if you can no longer access your computer?
The TSA Score is determined by analyzing the latest review data from multiple independent testing laboratories, other reputable third party review sites and our many years of experience in the security software industry. The results from these sources are then inputted into a proprietary formula that determines the final TSA Score.

Watchdog Anti-Malware is a second-layer, second-opinion cloud-based multi-engine malware scanner with real-time protection designed to protect your computer from malware that your primary anti-virus misses.
PC Protection Features
Effective multi-engine malware scanner
It’s simply not practical to install dozens of different anti-virus programs on your computer because they’ll conflict with each other and slow your system down, but even if you could it would be prohibitively expensive. We’ve come up with a way to provide you with several anti-virus scanners to catch malware that your primary anti-virus program misses — all at a fraction of the price. And it is point-and-click easy to use. Watchdog Anti-Malware is designed to neutralize viruses, trojans, rootkits, worms, spyware and adware.
Each unknown file will be analyzed carefully in the cloud before they execute on your PC. Whenever an execution attempt takes place, the executable file gets scanned with Pandora Technology and if it is found to be safe, it will be allowed. By using this technology on your PC, any zeroday malware that wants to attack has no power!
How It Works
Step 1. First you simply start a scan.
Step 2. Anti-Malware analyzes your files and when our software finds a suspicious file, it passes the fingerprint to our Cloud Scanning Platform where many different anti-virus engines perform checks. Milliseconds later, our Cloud Scanning Platform marks the file as safe or malicious, or else asks Anti-Malware to upload it for further examination.
Step 3. Anti-Malware rapidly sets about removing any confirmed malicious software.
Why cloud-based multi-engine scanning?
In the modern world, multi-layer security is essential to protect your valuable personal information from cyber-criminals. In 2015, more than 430 million new malware threats were released. No single engine can detect all threats, so having only one anti-virus engine is no longer sufficient. Only by using multi-engine scanning technology can you ensure that no threat goes undetected. That’s why Anti-Malware uses many different scanning engines to keep you protected.
Improve your security
Anti-Malware uses our Cloud Scanning Platform, a highly optimized cluster of servers running several anti-virus engines with the latest updates. This provides you with the power of multi-engine scanning without any of the downsides such as drains on system resources or conflicts between programs.
Fast scanning and malware removal
Anti-Malware is extremely optimized and lightweight. Our software engineers designed it to work out of the box without the need to tinker with confusing settings. Simply start a scan and wait a few minutes while it searches your computer and eliminates threats.
Removes unwanted apps, toolbars and add-ons.
