Tencent is really into many things. They were at the start primarily an IM client developer (they actually set a world record last year for IM client with like 210 million simultaneous users). They have branched out into the Enterprise space with Corporate IM and secure email. Branching out from this they got into streaming video (they have the contract to stream HBO in china) and music (another contract with Warner Bros.).

Recently they expanded into on line healthcare with investments in DXY, E-commerce with a joint venture with Wanda and Baidu, and as this wasn't enough they just started (December) China's second privately owned bank.

The product of Tencent is always around the corner even before and gradually perform good based on independent test organization for their AV since it gradual helps of licensing Avira engine for signatures.

It's a chinese company? Thanks for that @yigido. :) Allowed me to say the following...

Has anyone noticed that most of these "Chinese" companies all have a similar UI...? That window style with the menu buttons and that blue header... The WinForms controls... Maybe I'm wrong and it's just a few companies but Qihoo, Tencent, Baidu... But it seems like most/all of them have it.

Agree. All looks kind of same. Looking into the UI you can tell it's from China.

PSafe also has the similar UI, it has an UI like Qihoo ;)

Try again, seems only one main download server is available on their website. ;)

Anyways I'm not really sure why there UI are almost close to each other, I think might these AV companies may have a coinage something to represent their own standard UI as group? Since very way par on other major AV UI comparison that considered to be unique. ;)

Thanks, You've been very kind . It works perfectly . I send a catch that will surely be of your interest

Reminds me of the old Qihoo , when not brought cleaner and optimizer ... when he was just a AV .
The scan has been very fast and did not find FP , which makes me happy.

I will work it in Virus Exchange so that we can compare their detection with other AV celebrity

Uhhm you do realize that VT will distribute undetected malware to its partners? And given the fact that Tencent uses a Avira engine it will be very likely that virus detections will match those of many others on the VT list. So using VT as a guide to see if detections are unique are highly flawed.

Thanks. No, did not know that fact , I like to try antivirus , see the scan times , false positives ... I think it's a good idea to have the most information .

I do not understand policy VT or other , I am more ... simple? ...

I do not know where when tested samples where are obtained them , but of course , that the more sources better for all

BAD IDEA: VirusTotal for antivirus/URL scannertesting
At VirusTotal we are tired of repeating that the service was not designed as a tool to perform antivirus comparative analyses, but as a tool that checks suspicious samples with several antivirus solutions and helps antivirus labs by forwarding them the malware they fail to detect. Those who use VirusTotal to perform antivirus comparative analyses should know that they are making many implicit errors in their methodology, the most obvious being:

  • VirusTotal's antivirus engines are commandline versions, so depending on the product, they will not behave exactly the same as the desktop versions: for instance, desktop solutions may use techniques based on behavioural analysis and count with personal firewalls that may decrease entry points and mitigate propagation, etc.
  • In VirusTotal desktop-oriented solutions coexist with perimeter-oriented solutions; heuristics in this latter group may be more aggressive and paranoid, since the impact of false positives is less visible in the perimeter. It is simply not fair to compare both groups.
  • Some of the solutions included in VirusTotal are parametrized (in coherence with the developer company's desire) with a different heuristic/agressiveness level than the official end-user default configuration.
These are just three examples illustrating why using VirusTotal for antivirus testing is a bad idea.

Cheers
