The following is a web translated, from Russian to English, portion of a long interview in a Russian newspaper recently with Eugene Kaspersky. His remarks are being discussed in a thread on NOD32 over at dslreports. http://www.gazeta.ru/avp.shtml Question: "How you do relate to the appearance of new competitors on the fight with the computer viruses, for example, such, as NOD32, which, as are considered many, are much more effective in comparison with the antivirus Of kasperskogo?//Sergey (Zelenograd)" Answer: "Speaking about other antivirus programs, I can make mistakes: it is not necessary to receive my opinion as the opinion of company - this is my the personal opinion of antiviral expert, which can not coincide with other opinions - companies and other antiviral experts. NOD32 - very convenient, very rapid antivirus program, which very badly catches viruses. Regularly are obtained the rewards WB -100%, since "it is sharpened" to obtaining of these rewards. In the real life it very frequently passes the cases of infection. It enjoys popularity among the users, that determine the effectiveness of antivirus program on the beauty of interface. It does not enjoy popularity among the system administrators, who are investigated, that to what." I don't agree, of course, with those remarks but I think it great that there this is this amount of competition as that is wonderful for the users. If NOD32 were not such a big competitor, I doubt Kaspersky would have made such strong remarks about it.
