Can anyone who's used this software give me their opinions on it please? How does it compare to Kaspersky and Bitdefender for example?
I used it but not enough to have a solid opinion, although it seemed solid and ok. It is related to Checkpoint (Harmony) and when I installed Harmony I deleted the vm with ZoneAlarm.
