Trend Internet Security 2009… slow — 4 Comments

  1. Sure. In *independent* tests, Avira seems to always show up near the top.

    Somebody correct me if I’m wrong, but I think the reason few people know about Avira, is that most people don’t realise that the popular antivirus comparisons tests (by well known magazines, etc)… are not really independent.

    I believe the reviewers ask for a free version of the program to evaluate. If Avira doesn’t send reviewers a freebie, then avira doesn’t get reviewed.

    So only the companies with lots of $ can afford to let everyone and their dogs evaluate their software.

    More exposure = more profit (but not necessarily a better product). Norton and Trend are good examples of this.
