It’s nice to be informed, thanks for the share. We’ll all be keeping an ear to the ground. Hope it turns out otherwise, but such is life.i want to be clear, it is what i heard, things can change or what i said can be denied/refuted or simply not applied. i just shared the information so people won"t be waiting for nothing or be shocked if it happens.
Very sad indeed.. At least he could keep the static and configuration tools (SysHardener for example) pushing an update whenever there is free time. Dynamic tools such as OSArmor are very difficult to maintain as freeware considering the fast development pace of Windows 10.Despite my great love for NVT products, i heard from quite reliable sources, that NVT will mostly significantly reduce and eventually abandon the development of freewares like NVT, SysHardener or OSA. Their focus now is, obviously, making serious incomes (probably with SOB or tailored applications). This confirm somehow why their dev went silent for months and their freewares updated mostly when Windows 10 is upgraded.
Security Forums users are a niche market, and on top of that prefer enjoy freewares than paid ones. reason why several powerful tools are abandoned through the years (Trustfire, Malware Defender, Defensewall, Geswall, Online Armor, and recently Sandboxie, etc...).
One more reason for users to learn how to handle what security features Windows 10 offers, emphasize safe habits instead of relying in 3rd party tools.
And if you don't have Enterprise, or don't know much about fishing, or how to cook fish, there's @Andy Ful's restaurant in the meanwhile!One more reason for users to learn how to handle what security features Windows 10 offers, emphasize safe habits instead of relying in 3rd party tools.
Well, naturally, one cannot take these things for granted but sometimes the truth stings a bit. Kindly, a means to donate is provided at "the other forum," something I'd looked for previously but not well enough it seems. Good software is *always* worth paying for...how many can handle them and will pay? 10? 50? i barely count more than 30 regular users in both forums combined
Yeah, make it cheap and many people will be willing to pay. I know I do. The price of Windows softwares is just ridiculous. Look at Android. Look at Comodo (4.99/year) - their pricing model, i mean.I think several of their free tools are worth paying for. But it makes sense, you can’t eat good forum sentiments for dinner.
i dont specified just anti-viruses, but those 200+$ software like MS office, Photoshop, VMware, etc...Overpricing, not so sure about that. They have to pay employees and make some money. You can buy virtually any anti-virus, anti-malware, hips, firewall, anti-exploit, etc for unde $75.00 a year.
