I am looking into Katana and it seems like a great product for 0-day threats. How effective has it proven to be in testing?
I can say it is a matured product..not too paranoid
Responsive BB..Drweb greatly improved day to day in signatures department
Preventive protection cannot be rated as Excellent..but does the job
One thing about him..Advanced disinfection technologies are used by Dr web. Probably the best out there
They even disinfect Trojan.Encoder samples..where most of the Av vendors struggle even to get a signature for it.:cool:
Cons:
Too paranoid web blocking..probably top in that category
Fp's -- It detected IKARUS SETUP as Infected archive. Surprising !!

Go ahead and use it..It wont dissapoint you. But make sure you try before purchasing it.

If you plan to use Dr.Web Katana with Avast, it's useless. You need to use it with paranoid settings, which suck because Dr.Web doesn't maintain a database with harmless files.
