G-Data is very stable and has a very good BB, a good machine learning engine (deepray) and firewall. F-Secure has a great BB engine. Eset has the best signatures in industry and the second best advanced heuristics (only kaspersky has a little better heuristics that can fight new malware), a good machine learning engine, an IPS system, a very customizable program, an HIPS (that with granular rules improve very much indeed), a ransomware engine that is improving this year. BB engine and protection agains unkown malware need and will improve. For the next version they will keep improving, i can bet on thatGData and ESET, F-secure are also still alive and kicking.
Except Bitdefender which is still half european half american as far as I remember.You know what is the funny thing, Norton has acquired all the European companies which they had their own signatures. This is a huge shame for the EU that they easily sell their infrastructure companies.
Oh? I thought it was still fully European, with the founder still being the main shareholder.Except Bitdefender which is still half european half american as far as I remember.
Ah yes, you're right. Avast is banned permanently from my systems since when corrupted the Windows 10 Start menu, Cortana, and all the processes bound to Windows 10 UI, and I had to clean install everything.Avast is an antivirus full of bugs (just look at how many updates are released every week), average protection, the only advantage that Norton saw and did buy it is the number of clients, this will be advantageous for Norton owners
Emsisoft is still its own independent, yet relatively small, company on the market. I am using is now for its features and interface that Microsoft Defender is lacking for my personal uses.This seems like a big move. I used Avast for nearly a decade and since use WD. Has Emsisoft been bought yet? I have been out of the scene for awhile.
