Impressive results from Emsisoft, F-secure, Gdata, Kaspersky, and others got perfect score which are a rare case, since those samples isn't easy to be detected immediately and took longer or undetected from its time frame.

Even tough they have the source of samples where to be located.

Indeed, you really have to wonder what malware samples is AVC using..... :shy:

Emsisoft at the top, once they'll manage to integrate the Online Armor firewall into their Anti-Malware, this could be one of the best suites on the market.... Wonder how long it's going to take.

Avast also got an 100% rate, it seems that some user interaction is required, but on the good site, the Avast pop-ups are usually very easy to understand. Avast Free was tested , so you really get a great product for 0 $.

Well done to the usual suspects and a very nice result for Avast.

I tend not to trust such sites but maybe you can have an idea what's goin' on by checking their reports.

5 other products using BitDefender AV engine gets a better score then BitDefender does. That's crazy and I bet that these other products don't have all the issues as reported by BitDefender users.

Thanks.:D

The link from now at the moment isn't available until it goes back for the revision of charts.

Final/full results are not available yet - charts were still incomplete and not intended for public yet. Please come back in some days.

i dont think so, Emsisoft used to use Ikarus before, that was more powerful than BD but with more FPs.

Gdata used Avast , and recently shifted from it.

If BD dies, they will just use another engine (Avira, Kaspersky, etc...)

Money itself isn't an issue for anyone of security companies to license an engine from others as long they are agree to each other from shares and its related information.

As far as I know Bullguard only uses BitDefender AV engine and gets much better user reviews and doesn't appear to have all those annoying bugs that BitDefender has. I never have personally used Bullguard
because I don't know for sure, I'm just going by what I have read.

@Umbra, what AV engine did G data replace Avast with?
I have used G data several times in the past just to test it and I had to disable the BitDefender engine because it was so heavy. I figured they would get rid of BitDefender for another engine and keep Avast because it was so light.

Emsisoft doesn't appear to have the same issues with their BitDefender engine. What other AV engines do Qihoo 360 and eScan use?

I'm sure BitDefender is probably making more money leasing their AV engine to others then what the make off of their product sales. The same also probably applies to VirusBuster which used to be the most popular AV engine to lease.

The best AV engines include BitDefender, Kaspersky, Fortinet and Avast according to this comparative. (if you believe it)

I'm really surprised to see almost all of the products did very well except for Kingsoft (which has been acquired by another company) and AhnLab (which has never did very well on AV tests).

MY ISP just recently signed a deal with Fortinet to give its users free internet security. I haven't tried the setup because I'm happy with my current setup. I'm not sure how it is going to work but I believe they will use Fortinet's web filters to block malicious websites.

Thanks.:D

Escan are using Bitdefender Engine from their older version before but not sure on its current if still does.

Qihoo 360 = I'm not sure but they are using Cloud Service for that.

I could be wrong but I think I read somewhere that Qihoo 360 uses Avira engine and Bitdefender engine. Theres a thread at wilders http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=301338

Edit: This user says that it uses BD, Avira and 3 other engines.
