Could not have said it better myself. I try to deliver that message to people but it's an inconvenient truth...like global...well we won't go there; this is a security forum!
As for CIS, I have a lot of respect for them automatically because:
- They emphasize the importance of integrating (darn close to true) whitelisting into even "simple user" protection systems like almost every other major vendor does
- They offer a nearly ad-free, full blown suite for FREE. They aren't cutting out any firewall, no cuts on the whistles and bells...it's FREE.
- They don't stop there. Their website is full of additional security tools, from Cleaning Essentials (highly recommended btw) to Secure DNS.
Comodo is cool in my book, and any improvements to their AV just mean magic's about to go down...
