Hi, can u test clearsight free edition?


thanks :)
It hasn't been updated since 2019. Why even bother?

Edit: You can't even download the free version without sending a manual request to the company? WTF is this?

You are way behind with the times. Softpedia we don't use anymore.

We are updating the website and we have a new build with new scan engine.

Thanks

Well, considering you had no build info on your website when that post was made, and no info about ANY updates being made, perhaps it's not me who's behind the times?

Edit: Still no build info on your site, and the only way to download the free product, or trial the paid version, is to submit a request form. How very "with the times".

Guys, I think you should rely on the website directly and not softpedo ;-)
Code:

The new ones are fast and use a new engine. also has OPSWAT Gold Certification.

Go for it. :)

Do you use your own engine(s) or/and an outsourced one?
Cs uses our own and an additional signature based engine SDK. if you need keys pm me.

I forgot to say that we are launching the new version by giving every school free centrally managed antivirus. no charge.

The website is being updated. We are not Norton guys, just a small team trying to do some good. Would welcome any positive feedback as well as negative :)

Im using the free version, and so far so good

Is there a purpose to the white bar ? Also nice take on the double Eye Of Horus desktop icon.

Too many red flags.
Installer signed by "DSecSoft Ltd" which has a default splash page. Not a huge deal, it's only an installer.
Network filter driver is not WHQL, and the file system minifilter driver is also not WHQL and was last signed in 2016.
The file system minifilter doesn't seem to do much of anything aside from register callbacks.

Further, av-updates.net or whatever the "CDN" is hosts some pretty sus software.

I mean, you SAY this, but the website has no information. At all.

In fact, you follow up with "The website is being updated. We are not Norton guys, just a small team trying to do some good. Would welcome any positive feedback as well as negative :)"

So how about A: not telling us to rely on a website that hasn't been bothered to be updated, and B: it takes what, 20 minutes to list a version number or update on a website? You don't have to be Norton to do that.

There's also no place to download the free OR paid version without submitting a request. The only time we got a direct link was HERE.

In a world where AV needs to be advanced and sophisticated, this is some amateur horseshit. Sorry.
