I was not sure about it's known reputation or whether it's safe for general users. I booted up VBox to see what it offered, here's a few screenshots.

Is there any further information about it's virus engine, is it licensed, who are the developers? Is it a scam?

from your cnet link.. the publisher is
Code:
http://www.printtechsupport.com/index'
It is a support scam! The website also blocked by Bitdefender, ESET & Malwarebytes hpHosts
So no need an adventure..uninstall it and report it to CNET..
I can't believe how they release such things as legal..

That's why I didn't link the Homepage to the software. I downloaded straight from Cnet in VM.

Fake avs are coming back??? I use to love the support chats they offered back in 2007-2008. I'm going to download this and troll them Beyond comprehension. I use to love adware alerts chat I would spend hours clogging their systems up

I see the obvious part of the interface.

Usually the telephone hotline is not usually visible on the interface but on proper location; second the description/labels inputted are not professionally created.

From the first place, I thought something related to Qihoo 360 but definitely none since '360' is not a patented name label.

Obviously, this is not an AV, it is just an interface to throw the phone number to victim's faces.

You can tell from just the name that it's fake. I'm not going to lie though, the interface looks appealing.

@Wave are you digging into it? Is it fake or legal app with poor reputation?
I suspect that from GUI (844 XXX XXX Call Free Support) it can be fake
Edit: It is fake! Stay away1
