Do you really think you will be safe if you run an antivirus program?
If you do, then you are MAD, MAD, MAD!!!!
I do not think anyone is mad when he believe to be protected when
he use a classic AV program, but I am sure that the true madness
is when, as user, you are convinced to buy a product which claims
to provide protection but in reality, you are just added to the list
of users that improves the detection rate (due to new malwares that
you will catch). But you thought you are protected...
In my opinion the problem occurs when a user must decide wich security
suite will use and if he has all information necessary for the correct
product. Most computers already have on purchase a security system
preinstalled, ads are very aggressive on the market and always will be
promoted the classic AV products with the highest rate of detection
which, will NEVER provide protection against newest malwares in the wild.
I do not think it is a surprise that classical AV products are running on
the most computers in the world and users will consider to be safe because
they are not convinced of the existence of alternative products based on
prevention technologies wich are able to prevent the infections of the
An advanced user will know that a product like Comodo combining other
technologies than a classic AV product (Default Deny Protection, HIPS,
Sandbox, AV, Firewall, etc.) will ensure the most searched protection
against the newst malwares in the wild but a novice user will not be
convinced that such a product is safer than one that has a detection
rate of 99.99%! In this era, who have information, will rule the world!
Therefore, the information on safe alternatives to AV products must reach
novice users in their language, so that they can be convinced that there
is something more secure than a AV product with 99,99% detection rate!
Then we will see how the balance will change to the new user option and then
indeed, you are mad thinking to be safe using a antivirus program.
Comodo presents a powerful alternative against of AV products and this
alternative must be known by everyone, especially by users without
much computer knowledge!
