    TrustPort Workstation is now available with 5 engines for > 10 licenses users.

    Normally these 4 engines are included:
    Norman
    AVG
    Ewido
    Dr. Web

    But if your purchase more then 10 licenses you can have:
    VirusBlokada
    as your fifth engine!
    Besides a firewall and antispam and a encrypted logical disc and disc shredder
    it also has eSign and a very powerfull temporary file cleaner

    5 antivirusses on one computer ! :D

    You have the option of choosing which engines to use for the realtime scanner and which ones for on-demand. A "light setup" would be running the AVG and Dr.Web engines at real-time and all engines on-demand.
    I think that with AVG 8 coming, the Ewido engine will dissapear.

    Yes, you can decide which engines you want to use for on-access.
    With a modern computer (< 4 years old) performance will be no problem.
    :)

    But if you have a very old computer you can select 1 or 2 engines
    for On-Access. ;)

    For On-demand it doesn't matter perhaps it will scan a bit longer,
    but that means that it will find thousands of malware more then other AV's do.
    See the last on-demand (test with updated AV's) at av-comparatives.org
    And others.
    So this makes it possible to scan your files with 5 engines.

    remember that many companies want to have the data scanned with more engines.
    because every antivirus test proofs, that 1 engine is not enough.

    And yes, i have the 5 engine version running smoothly here. :thumb:

    Of course you can always select one of the fastes antivirus products in the world, (which found 17000 samples less) :p

    I'm gonna test TrustPort Workstation with 4 engines. Just started to download that huge (137,96 MB) setup file. I just want to check scan speed and memory usage.

    Have at it Mike. I think I am going to give a pass on testing this one out.

    I have tested this one now. It's intresting that I can install 5 engines and TrustPort Workstation didn't need restart. I set all engines active :D Some slowdowns and memory usage is around 150MB. After all I like this "super" suite. So much options and possibilities.

    EDIT: I can't update databases because it says:

    Connection error, check your connection

    Re: Help for Trustport

    I ran "TrustPort AntiVirus v2.8.0.1824 Trial" with 5 engines :
    1. Grisoft
    2. VirusBlokAda
    3. DrWeb
    4. Ewido AntiSpyware
    5. Norman

    Target: C:\ D:\ = Cystem and Data Partition.

    Options:
    - Scan all files.
    - Requested action: Report only.
    - Excluded extensions disabled.
    - Excluded objects disabled.
    - Heuristics enabled
    - Sandbox disabled
    - Scan archives.

    Scanned files :


    Scan Results:
    Infected : 7 Files (= 2 files due to doubles in FDISR-snapshots)
    C:\$ISR\1\Program Files\IZArc\SFXS\IZArcSZip.dat <--- Backdoor.Win32.MoSucker.30.e (IZArc)
    C:\$ISR\2\Program Files\IZArc\SFXS\IZArcSZip.dat <--- Backdoor.Win32.MoSucker.30.e (IZArc)
    C:\$ISR\A\Program Files\IZArc\SFXS\IZArcSZip.dat <--- Backdoor.Win32.MoSucker.30.e (IZArc)
    C:\Program Files\IZArc\SFXS\IZArcSZip.dat <--- Backdoor.Win32.MoSucker.30.e (IZArc)
    C:\$ISR\2\WINDOWS\system32\AEServEx.exe <--- Embedded.Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Banload.kgr (Anti-Executable)
    C:\$ISR\2\WINDOWS\system32\AEServEx.exe <--- Embedded.Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Banload.kgr (Anti-Executable)
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\AEServEx.exe <--- Embedded.Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Banload.kgr (Anti-Executable)


    So 2 false positives : Anti-Executable stole the show this time.

    Because this scanner doesn't have an elapsed time, I don't know the exact scan time. I guess this scanner is pretty old or it doesn't have an analyst. What I do know is that it took at least 6 hours, probably more than 7 hours or 8 to scan partition C and D.

    All that for just 2 false positives ? Unbelievable.

    All the rest was normal : installation, updating and scanning, but quite slow and certainly the scan. I'm glad it's uninstalled.

    I did not expect that you would find much malware, since you are perhaps the most active Security forum member :>)

    Don't worry about the False Positives, TrustPort always copies it to the quarantine area, and you can restore it with a mouseclick.

    Please exclude the files and submit them to support <at> trustport.com

    It is nice to see that you did not find any real malware, but
    av-comparatives tested with 1.7 million malware samples!! at their latest test and TrustPort found THOUSANDS of viruses that all the other famous brands couldn't find.

    Of course the larger famous brands, have more programs sold,
    so they will find False Positives faster.
    But better too find 2 False Positives that are easy to restore
    then missing thousands of real viruses etc.

    About the full scan, of course this might take longer,
    but again, you can schedule it in the night, and for a lot of people they don't mind if it takes longer, if that means it find viruses others don't.

    Looks very good indeed, considering that I would never touch any of the engines, if they were single. I would rather like a product with these engines,
    -Kaspersky
    -Avira
    -BitDefender
    -NOD32

    and if you buy 10 licenses....Dr.Web

    I would like it more, although it would be a lot heavier.

    I'd also like to know, what Firewall does Trustport PC Security include?

    In that case i would prefer Avira as an extra engine, because that is the strongest single engine out there..(near my opinion).

    Avira is very good....that's why I think it should be by default. The extra is Dr.Web, because it hasn't achieved a detection as good as the other products (according to comparison), but that sometimes can surprise us (rustock.c):D

    Indeed. For me AVG has always been a "false-positiver". If you see at av-comparatives proactive test, Trusport made many false positives. Using the engines I mentioned above would provide a nearly 99.9% detection, IMO.

    I did like the concept and it's presentation but when i tried it it slowed down my pc (advanced pc) to a crawl. However since it's been a while ago i am willing to try it again. Have they made any progress in that area ( less system impact)?

    avira engine seems to just have "token detections" which imo are useless. if you cant remove it your not doing your job properly.
    people do sometimes get infected before there is a signiture.
    best to use a single engine av with a good reputation that can detect and remove the threat if needed.

    Any AV will slow down your system, and the more engines- generally the more your system will be slowed down. As a test as to the performance impact, remove all real time anti-malware programs and run your computer without them. Now, compare the performance gain without them versus with them.

    The view that more is better is the premise that needs to be questioned the most. I alternate with light running AVs, including Eset, NIS, Avira, and Dr. Web. Trustport is not anywhere near being light or light enough.
