Discussion in 'ewido anti-spyware forum' started by vlk, Apr 19, 2006.
Since Grisoft want to integrate the EW scanner into their product, I wonder what the shelf-life of both the free and commercial versions of Ewido now is ?
Those users who purchased a "lifetime" license for EW will be particularly concerned ?
Maybe it was "lifetime of the ewido product"... which is now over...
Keep cool. For our customers nothing will change. ewido anti-malware will still exist.
Am I correct in understanding the information as: only the scanning technology is licensed to Grisoft, the company is still independent and will keep on developing Ewido Anti-Malware?
Those of us who renewed our licenses for several years are also concerned
Good news! So Ewido will still exist as a standalone product?
In addition to that, I can't combine/understand these two informations in my head:
maybe they acquired only technology (advanced unpacker emulator - dynamic unpacking) and spyware defs will be acquired from another company
This means the company ewido network was accquired by Grisoft, not only our technology.
So we're now part of Grisoft, but the product ewido anti-malware will still exist and the development will be continued.
it will be called always ewido anti-malware? or grisoft anti-spyware?
and, another question: has some sense still have ewido as standalone software? I mean, if ewido technology and defs will be included in AVG, why have two same software?
Yes, but will you still provide the database, or will it be bought from another company, as vlk's link says?
We still will have our database.
I can't read in this post that another company will buy our database. Please guy s don't start any rumors.
well, so I believe it's clear:
Ewido is bought by AVG. Ewido will give its technology (advanced emulatore, dynamic unpacking) to AVG but not its database.
If so, now I understand why Ewido will remain as standalone software
I'm not starting anything. The article says:
So under the line, they basically just licensed the engine...
That will depend on the wording of the license and the laws of the jurisdiction that governs the license.
Keep calm guys nothing is going to change with your licenses
I can see from the screenshots of Ewido 4.0 that the new UI looks like Windows Defender UI. Am I wrong?
Yes you are. It looks like ewido anti-malware 4.0
would it be possible to see some extra screenies?
Does that even make sense? You brought the whole company without the company's Db?
So who owns the Db now?
I was hoping AVG would do something great. After all Intel did invest some huge money into it. And with the help of Ewido they might have a chance for passing the retro test in Av-comparatives for the first time
And if ever Grisoft is thinking of redesigning Webpage , Logo, GUI of their next gen AV , or any graphical things please leave them to ewido team?
( Btw Good job Ewido teams! for the new design of webpage and logo )
