    This is a security suite article in the Washington Post. If this has already been posted, I apologize.

    The review (IMHO) focuses on the 'old dogs' of the business without checking out the newer and better A/Vs (like KAV and NOD) or checking out some of the more interesting ideas in security -- i.e. DefenseWall, Prevx1...

    Uh, I dunno about that.

    AVG (Grisoft) is a Czech company - I think.

    Trend is Brit.

    Panda is Spanish - I believe.

    And ZoneLabs is Israeli.

    One of the better reviews i've read because he didn't sound too impressed with any of them and none of them IMO, measure up to KAV & NOD32 protection wise.

    This -- to me -- makes Trend sound Japanese. But I suppose you can be incorporated in one country with the majority of your workforce in another...

    This makes Panda sound pretty Spanish... but I dunno.

    And this from the Panda website:

    Very interesting read and I agree with several of his observations concerning the current security software suites he reviewed. Wonder why he didn't review Kaspersky's Internet Security Suite ? I would have liked to have read his opinion of this one compared to the others he reviewed.

    I'm not american, so i don't read the WP. But i wouldn't go there for AV reviews anyway:D . Even if it's a good review, it won't be better than getting some of the tests available in tha net.
