Same goes for F-Prot.

ESET, producer of NOD32 has been founded in 1992, but even before 1992 there has been NOD antivirus on the market. Original NOD was produced by ATA konzorcium Trnava somewhere between 1986-1988.
I remember Thunderbyte, late 80 's.
The first "site license" of AVAST! antivirus was sold in 1988.
