Ok on your personal view or knowledge, which AV software out there updates the fastest.
I think KAV...
I`d second that...
I think KAV updates the fastest on new threats. As for update frequency throught out the day & weekends its KAV and BitDefender, IMO.
There were some tests about this subject;
I know Panda and Kaspersky are very fast for new threats not covered by heuristics. Alwil (avast!) also appears to be quiet fast, same for H+BEDV (AntiVir). Otherwise NOD32, Panda and BitDefender and lately even F-Prot are very good at covering malware from the first moment it's released using heuristics.
From the second link. That's why I have already mentioned before that DrWeb has second best update frequency.
Only those update frequencies have increased a bit after this table was published.
PS. According to the last 6 months of ESET web site they update now about 33 times/month.
I belive he's talking about response times...
I think that SOME OF THOSE response times were only tested against those "zero hour threats", what's ESET is calling them. Unfortunately, I think that all those "zero hour threats" are less than 2 % of all kind of new nasties.
Dr.WEB, I think. It is a good idea, but is not a solution. without a good Heuristic, you are at risk, even with hourly updates.
Don't mix quality & quantity
