    that along with the fact that both company websites look similar and the fact that anvi have blocked the registrar for the domain name (anvisoft.com) plus the bad english on both websites along with the fake western names of forum admins shows that they are both are tied.

    probably a move by iobit to rebrand current software as their name has been tarnished due to the malwarebytes hacking scandal..

    1.We developed the engine ourselves, with features of fast-scanning, lower resources taking, and quick-reacting, so we called it “Smart Engine”
    2.Definitely we will keep it free after beta.
    3....Compared with other traditional anti-malware software, Anvi Smart Defender is quite smart and taking up lower system resource.
    4.According to our test team’s statistics, Anvi Smart Defender is compatible with most of the mainstream software.
    5.We will update our signature database every day after releasing RC, and we release our RC version in three weeks.
    6.We will keep up improving our software’s detection rate especially the newest malware, and also we have “Cloud Scan” function supplied for earliest detection of latest malware.
    Thanks again.

    That's why I won't touch anything remotely connected to iobit.

    Till we know more information, lets try to keep Iobit's name out of the thread. I don't want this thread to get locked or anything. :)

    Agree with Cloud. Let's focus solely on Anvi Smart Defender Beta. Thanks!

    I hear what you're saying but I have to mention IOBit.

    1. Is this product by IOBit or a subsidiary?

    2. Does it use IOBit's engine? That would be fine with me.

    It's nice to see another cloud AV, and the GUI has me drooling!

    The product was developed by this new company and not Iobit, though the website can convince you otherwise. It may be that one of them is an ex-employer, or the product and website design were somehow influenced by Iobit (just as how people are influenced by others). The product has the same general idea as Malware Fighter, in a way, but is lighter, faster, has better cloud functionality (in my opinion), etc.

    If you scroll up, someone posted a quote from Michelle, who is apart of the Anvisoft Team developing ASD. She claims the engine was built by them.

    P.S. I agree. The GUI is awesome! :argh:

    Don't guess without strong evidence. Wait what will happen.:rolleyes:
    Their homepage looks like IBM anvisoft.com vs ibm.com

    It's an Indian based company for sure...

    Anvisoft Technologies India Pvt Ltd.

    But they present themselves as Anvisoft Corporation and registered their domain as Anvisoft Technology with godaddy.com and that too with US based address.

    I highly doubt that a US based company will use a AV core-engine technology from a China based vendor. I may be wrong although. But after doing some background check, I am 101% sure that it's an Indian based company and not a US based.

    Cheers,

    PS: Domain Information- http://who.godaddy.com/whois.aspx?domain=anvisoft.com&prog_id=GoDaddy

    Been testing it for a few days. Seems to run just fine with Comodo Firewall and Avast Pro. I haven't notice any conflict so far.

    Just installed this but having problems when I try to update it. Says "Connect Error". I have CIS also running, but from what I can tell it is not blocking Anvi and has it labeled as safe.

    Installed, tried & uninstalled. Checked against 30 malware from 30 days, detected only 1.

    Very light but detection is very poor.

    I guess currently there are no updates or no daily updates

    read the forum but still cant find what engine does it use. Its very fresh and new and may require considerable time to settle in.

    Lets hope it turns out to be good FREE product .

    Anvisoft developed their own engine. Despite that, they are being brought down by accusations and rumors.

    Well, after the first day of running Anvi-SD (RC) on my underpowered netbook I find it very light on resources (much more so than NIS2012 which it replaced)!

    I think the GUI is very user-friendly and I was pleasantly surprised in that there were just a few (behavioral) pop-ups during the first hour of use. I also like the addition of the cleaning-optimizing tools. However, I am concerned about Naren's initial test-results which obviously do not inspire confidence towards the software's main goal. :doubt:
