12 years of experience, but I have never heard about it, though its facebook page was founded in 2003, so it might be.
Anyway, theirs product description it literally nonexistent, so that would explain it. They really need to invest in marketing.
GridinSoft's homepage is even more funny, when I scroll down, the text popups up from left, right, top, it is a mess hard to read.

VERSION 4.1.20
Released on December, 30 2019
The previous release led to a deplorable situation with loading databases and checking MD5 (have you remember, we are switched to a long sprint branch on the engine?). Fixing is necessary.
  • engine fixing in the MD5 checking procedure;
  • bug fixing for the 104.cdb database.
VERSION 4.1.19
Released on December, 28 2019
The past release has revealed complications: threat databases are not always downloading correctly, the program hangs in several cases. So on New Year's Eve, we're releasing an improved version, which has been a parallel branch for a long time because of numerous serious changes in engine.
  • just to make serious fix in the database handling flow;
  • a long sprint with major engine changes is finally over! The scanning speed and quality were increased. In addition, the Threat List has been widely reorganized and dozens of new threat families added.

VERSION 4.1.30
Released on February, 19 2020
A few technical changes which should have a very positive effect on scanning speed:
  • repeated scanning has been accelerated;
  • the mechanism for scanning archives and Microsoft CFB file format (doc, docx, xls, xlsx, etc.) has been redesigned. Now we unpack and check everything we can.

VERSION 4.1.31
Released on March, 2 2020
Hi.

  • on-run protection: the scanner start with a check of currently running processes was fixed;
  • on-run protection: the cache has been implicated in a bad faith. It was repaired and redesigned as a result;
  • on-run protection: the interface will no longer hang on with a large number of detections;
  • on-run protection: while checking archives, it will stop checking files in a specific archive after finding at least 1 detection in it;
  • data hashing in Lib.md5 became faster (depending on the platform. x64 1.6 times/x32 2.3 times). Plus, hashing of some data streams has become 1.4 times faster (additional factor). According to the previous two points, in fact - we just decreased the processor workload;
  • an issue with sending bug reports: numerous places were initialized where we have added bug reports;
  • we have a mechanism in checking archives that interrupts the unpacking of files by extension (to speed up operating, so as not to check everything in a row) - it will be disabled when DeepScan option is checked in the settings;
  • several fixed bugs (according to the bug tracker), mostly not visible to the usual user and not affecting the detection quality.

VERSION 4.1.33
Released on March, 12 2020
This release includes all the previous changes, plus an annoying bug has been fixed. Ongoing work to improve functionality:

  • Handling of the PE-files was improved: now it is possible to process them in case they are partially damaged;
  • The process of collecting system information was accelerated;
  • Automatic recovery from quarantine after database update was disabled in some cases. Was fixed as well;
  • The problem with the update of upd012.c was investigated and eliminated;
  • The quality of detection was improved by numerous tricks with certificates, signed files, heuristics, and current tasks processing. We have noticed an insignificant increase in first-scan time. It really worth it;
  • Several issues with unpacking and analyzing of archives' content were fixed;
  • UI improvements: new design for three-quarters dialogs was applied;
  • A lot of things from the bug tracker were fixed (these improvements did not affect the functionality but allow our programmers to remain as cool as cucumbers).

VERSION 4.1.35

Total quarantine brings adjustments to our workflow too: fully remote and isolated, with difficulties in understanding and task distribution. But we make great progress with our internet filter and ready to update it (finally!).

  • Some changes in UX connected with new Internet Security driver;
  • Some updates in engine core to detect new threats better.
