    I cannot confirm this but I have seen some references on the web which suggest it has the kaspersky engine;

    This AV has come out of nowhere to score very highly in VirusP's latest test;

    http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=17092

    Which is very unusual for a 'new' AV as they need to build up the database of definitions.

    Ignoring the relative merits of the testing procedure used, the fact that a relatively unknown AV did so well suggests that it may well be using 'a more well-known scanning engine'.

    The fact that their support appears somewhat less than stellar,

    http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=16216

    they do not appear to have a proper home base URL and the fact that it appears to have been tested only once at one testing site would suggest that you view this AV with caution if looking for a new AV.
