    Hi

    should eset,antivir.kaspersky and other companys that are great at making antivirus stick to that only and let e.g. outpost and look N stop make the firewalls?

    btw i know that kaspersky already make firewall and eset and antivir will do soon.

    I was just wondering what you people think
    please explain your choice

    I voted "yes".

    My main concern is that the a/v is excellent.
    That's what I would be looking for from these companies.
    I'm not saying that these companies can't or won't make a good firewall.IMO the a/v is more important.

    I don't prefer suites so that's part of my reasoning also.

    i agree with the Tester but for now, i might as well try the firewalls.

    kaspersky already has theirs, avira is beta testing their suite and eset will release the suite later.

    As "yes" or "no" choices is more suitable to a discussion type thread....the poll option has been removed from this thread.

    Absolutely yes. See my set ups below you do not see any AV Firewall suite mix from a single company. I have yet to see one do one that I like both Firewall and AV in one. I favor putting together my own custom Suite of products. At least so far Firewall and AV should always be seperate imo. ;)

    Maybe the question should be: what would be the (dis)advantages for the user if anti-virus companies stick with being a pure anti-virus?

    I see no advantages at all, most important is that the user is well protected, and to me it isn't important at all it is done by a suite or sole programs;)

    Well, I think they should stick on antivirus only. I haven't seen a very good firewall made by a company making AV also...at least for the moment. Anyway Comodo is the best Firewall in my oppinion and they're making AV also...but their AV is.. no comment. :D so...perhaps everyone should make only one thing. ;)

    Very true, but that does not make it the best solution. ;)
