    Great! Now we can have the best of both worlds: heurístics and signatures. :D

    The number of updates per day doesn't say nothing about how you are protected. For instance, you can have 10 updates per day with one signature added, or one update with 100 signatures.

    Well, even 100 updates per day with signatures for DOS viruses that don't run on Win32 platform wouldn't make your pc safer :)

    but historically, I've counted up to 6 updates in a single day (from the updates archive)...

    yes i know but i mean that more update will reduce malware infection possibility(on ITW virus). for example if today we have 3 new ITW virus in 3 different time : virus A 08.00, virus B 11.30, virus C 14.00 then ESET can provide maybe 2 or 3 definition not only cumulatif update per day. :D

    In the dispute Kaspersky versus NOD32 I believe that NOD32 has more possibility to add the signatures to the heuristic than Kaspersky to add heuristic to the signatures.
    The future can be more promising to NOD32, I believe.
    The updates are a good investment.

    I believe just the opposite. See Av-comparatives. NOD32 got advanced+ and advanced+ (on-demand and proactive), while KAV got Advanced+ and Advanced. I think KAV needs to improve the heurístics more than NOD32 needs to improve the signatures, IMHO.

    Yup! :D I've seen days in the past where 4-5 updates have happened. But as noted above....it's not the frequency or size of the updates that counts. What's important in my opinion is protection against current threats, and knowing NOD32 takes them on using heuristics. For those who want different protection, who want to lean on definition sizes..then this may be the wrong product for you, don't try to change it.

    It's telling to me that of the customers who are just RENEWING with us (we've been selling NOD32 for only 14 months now - give or take a few weeks) - I'm asking them what the biggest reason for renewing is...

    So I'd have to say that Eset *MUST* be on-top of things - at least ONE of the renewals I spoke to YESTERDAY had PLENTY of problems before NOD32 (or BN32 as I call it) - and LOVES that he can surf some rather unsavory sites and remain protected by heuristics as well as signatures...
