I like (but no trust) 2 companies:

Comodo: for making CIS (and mostly all of their products) complete and free when it will be easier to make it paid.

Emsisoft: for making their products very solid without fluffy resource-hog gadget features.

Most users don't do research on products or companies, they just trust whatever is recommended by other users.

If you are one of these users who do preform research on products and companies and keep up with the latest software news, your opinion of who you trust and who you don't trust might be much different.

I don't trust any companies who are known to have shady business relationships (currently or in the past) with known adware, rogueware or other malware. I don't trust companies that are know to be involved to create paranoia, scareware, false advertising, fake malware tests results, publishing fake reports or reviews of their products or encouraging their members to spamadvertise security forums. I don't trust companies that have shady or unclear privacy policies.

After all said and done only a very few stand out for me to trust.
Not to mention any names, info isn't that hard to find if you are willing to search.

Thanks.:D
 
I chose...
Avast for their free antivirus program with the sandbox feature (so I don't have to use sandboxie).
Comodo for their firewall (and a little anti-malware support)
Emsisoft for their great anti-malware program which I use on demand.
Other for Malwarebytes for on demand as well it will find what my other programs can't.

Currently, i'm placing trust into Emsisoft's hands, and well, feel it is well placed.

The question is asking that which company do you trust, meaning I trust Trend Micro more then let's say AVG because I have been using Trend for years now and trust them.

Yes the question is not "do you trust AV companies for their behavior" but more "which companies' products do you trust?"

Only one company comes to mind that actually created malware to increase their product sales, popularity and got caught releasing it into the wild. That is Rising. However they are still the #1 AV company in China. So many people still trust them believe it or not. I'm sure other companies also have did the same at one time or another but yet to be caught in their actions. Many paid only AV vendors are loosing sales do to freeware AV's and they are trying whatever trick in the book to get their sales back.

What comes to my mind lately is falsified malware activity reports published many paid versions trying to make users believe malware infections are worse than what it really are. And malware infection reports that only apply to companies, businesses and corp, not home users.

Like I said in my previous post, creating paranoia to increase sales and popularity. Even some freeware vendors are guilty.

"Actions speak loader than words" if a company is known to have bad actions then sooner or later it will reflect into their products.

Thanks.:D

I trust Avast, Comodo, McAfee ( I tested briefly his McAfee Internet Security and it wasn't bad. But I uninstalled it, because it was trial and I install only McAfee Site Advisor.)

Also I trust Avira, because its very good security software.

And I trust producers of Malwarebytes Anti Malware, because this software is very good malware detector.
