    It seems that everyone is doing it.

    Will ESET?

    Yes, old news, however, Eset are in a very different position, in that the quality of their development team is far superior to most.

    Cheers :D

    Not sure if ESET will openly discuss future biz plans, but you are right about several security companies 'collaborating' or buying into each other. For example the ZoneAlarm Pro suite has Computer Associates Antivirus module and Mail Frontier Antispam module. Other 'mixed suites' include Bullguard and F-secure Internet Security 2006 Suite.

    The whole security landscape is becoming so flooded some companies will certainly die or be bought out. Microsoft's entrance will also upset a good number of some of these companies in my opinion. It may be a good idea for ESET to think about.

    What would your dream 'merging' be? (ESET I mean!)

    ESET and PrevX...

    If that happens, Eset will become a partner of Kaspersky Labs, since Tallemu is now partnered with Kaspersky. What this means is known by every NOD32 (and KAV) user. :D

    But actually, Eset currently has enough development staff, and an extremely talented Virus analyst team and development team. :)

    Ewido will have a better future if it is merged with NOD32 instead of AVG. :D

    I think Eset should buy out either JPMorgan Chase or Deutschebank. That would give them a much higher profile in the securities sector. :D

    And this should give them plenty of money to do more R&D to make NOD32 even better. :D

    Just as a matter of interest.

    With a client base that they have, analysts and coders etc and 24/7 response to major threats.
    How many people do ESET employ?

    Not to provoke an East vs West debate, it seems the Western security companies enjoy that large 'market share' and have placed bets on unending loyalty from both corporate and individual customers who get PC's from High Street Stores preloaded with XXX.

    This leaves a highly technical minority 'user' group using a collection of sophisticated security products: A point that brings us back to which 'best security' products will make a 'perfect secure marriage'. It is unfortunate that some of the best programming geared towards taking security to the highest level is in companies with 'doubtful' lifespan/userbase as it is evident from someone genuinely wondering about ESET size.

    For me I wish ESET could 'team' with Agnitum, F-secure and PC Tools.:D

    team with agnitium yes f-secure maybe but kaspersky may be better to use.
    pc tools is a no no in my oppintion because pc doctor seems to just produce false possitives. if you read some of the posts on the wilders antispoyware board . people have posted something saying they have been free from spyware by spysweeper and ewido. but when they run spyware doctor it says they have like 20 spyware infections with toolsbars and stufff and they have lookeds and no toolbars and no spyware so must be FP'S

    sounds like you all have invested serious money into nod32 lol ...

    for me the best combination would be:

    SSM with NOD32

    like this all would happen lol ..

    I think Eset should offer Microsoft the chance to join them.
