i just saw version 2007 on FileForum. anyone heard of this antivirus or even tried it?
Tried it about a year ago, very easy to install, configure, mailscanning, auto update etc. Better than nothing, but I wouldn't bet my money on this horse, as detection rates are very poor. But with the new version......who knows? I won't be trying it again.
even i would like to know about this AV...
Couldn't resist trying again and I must say.....it looks very good, still simple, easy configuration, enough options for a simple setup. Everything works fine...Nice interface! I'll let it run for a few days and report back.
The Eicar testfiles, including the zip, were dealt with properly. So far, so good!
they are meant to be caught, i bet detection is still low.
stick to what you know
Just testing, that's all! Same as you are doing all week long! Detection rates are low, that's known, but the same story on several AV scanners. It runs very smoooth, that's for sure! Nice scanner for a large group......simple 'out of the box' product!
Protector Plus is developed by an Indian company named Proland. The AV product is frankly not worth wasting your time on, and has continually exhibited poor detection rates. Their website is here:
testing all week long?... just dr.web for me m8
i dont plan on using such an AV, but out of curiousity, how poor is poor?
probably CA poor,
Sometimes I wonder where you get all your knowledge from, because you answer about every post here.
good enough answer for me, anyone else have something to add?
its bad b'coz it's indian...according to many around..
at least a few people agreed, sure.. if you want to use this piece of junk, please do, but i will reply to whatever i want ok, K.H.
What does the fact, that it is Indian have to do with it? Don't start mentioning nationalities when it comes to AV products, it has bugger all to do with it. If it ain't from the States, it ain't good enough?
Very few indeed and no reason to start screaming your rights!
not for me and not u...but the comment was directed towards someone else...and for once i thought that i was talking to a mod seeing ur last couple of post...
Cool down guys! CA is better than Protector Plus, atleast it has some certifications and the trusted Vet engine under its belt. As far as Indian AV softwares are concerned only Quickheal and eScan deserves a mention but both of them has to walk a long way.
if you say its worse than CA, then it speaks for itself.
Worse than CA/eTrust by quite a noticeable margin, unfortunately. However, I do still suppose its better than Prognet's Fire AV....
Even worse than Peruvian AntiVirus (PER) ?
actually is The Hacker AV.
