    Just a heads up that anyone who clicks on the latest report (real-world test) can gasp a sigh of relief...

    ...it is still Webroot's old product being tested....which clearly sucked beyond belief...

    Now we play the waiting game for SecureAnywhere to be tested. :)

    We aren't trying to hide that fact :D I'm not sure of the exact timing for the SecureAnywhere testing, but I believe it will either be started immediately in January, or possibly shortly after depending on when AV-C comes back.

    We do have some tests coming out shortly which, according to Murphy's Law, obviously had to happen while we were making several changes and ended up introducing some very out-of-the-ordinary issues: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=314156

    So, the next couple test results probably won't be very good, just to let everyone know, but we've fixed those issues already and are anxiously waiting for the next round :)

    Noted.

    Honestly this code is still very new and things will obviously go wrong as you have stated. I am not going to go as far as some and say that this was not ready for prime-time, but certainly test results should be optimal after the beginning of 2012.

    Just wanted to remind everyone to always make sure it is Webroot SecureAnywhere being tested when reading results. :p

    I'm sure that vendors always get a copy of the results from Reputable testing organizations such as AV-C! ;)
