    Why would Norton not be on there?

    That's so bad I'm not even gonna use the thumbs down because it ain't strong enough.

    Part of having and maintaining a good product means you have to do more than claim it - you gotta prove it!

    Haha I didn't notice that they were missing from the list o_O
    If this list is correct, then it's a very weird move by Symantec o_O

    I dont know why this is so shocking. It has been evident for about a year and a half that Symantec was using Dennis Labs more and more.

    No Norton and no Comodo :D

    Guess the Norton source code issue is a more serious issue than we think.lol

    Ohh.. Come-on not again...
    Why not Emsisoft included this year too ?? o_O

    If Emsisoft included then it would bring a very very competitive competition for first 5 places on the board :D
    These five hot seats are highly targeted by the AV vendors ;) :p :D

    Emsisoft has previously said that it costs too much and that they would rather spend those several thousand Euros on developing their product.

    Its no use even if they continue to develop their product (to catch 100% malware ;) ) without a good review from a reputed av-testing organization.
    Participating will also help to uplift their marketing/sales figures which will help them in long run and spread their product more among the user community.

    I agree. Av-Comparatvies and AV-Test are two of the major testing organizations. They rarely appear in AV-Test either although I was told that was not determined/controlled by Emsisoft.

    Yeah you got my point :thumb: :thumb:

    Emsisoft should participate in Av-Comparatvies OR ELSE at least with AV-Test on regular intervals... :D

    Some vendors may choose to not participate due to how reliant on the cloud their products now are for high detection rates, this isn't necessarily bad.

    I'm not saying this is what's happening, for all I know they just don't want to pay the money. But it's a possibility.

    Does that mean these products will be tested throughout the year 2012
    without norton??:cautious: :cautious: :cautious:
    Edit: BTW can anyone give me some info about AhnLab V3 Internet Security 8.0?
    Its system requirements seems pretty low. That means its not using BD engine..lol

    Surprising that Symantec has opted out. They were scoring well in whole product dynamic tests. Eager to see results of Fortinet and GFI:)

    Not detection rates, but rather FPs. I have noticed a trend that the cloud has a significant effect on what kind of FPs your product is going to produce.

    Symantec may be worried it's product is going to produce more FPs than normal in AV-comparatives' test conditions (this is just speculation). Note that PC Tools is still a participant meaning that Norton is still around in some form since PC Tools uses the Norton engine.
