At first i wondered about the price tags. 79,99-89,99
Then i wondered about that one of these products “achieved a first-ever perfect score for malware blocking”.
At last i wondered about: “At the other end of the spectrum, Comodo Internet Security Pro 2012 ($4.99/year direct, 4 stars) sticks to the basics, firewall and antivirus; its low-low price matches the bare-bones feature set.”
Initially you get descriptions of lorries full of features (Yeah, for 89,99, you know?), if you need them or not, if you can get them on your own or not.
At the end you somehow meet a cheap car. Old, bare bone, basic. Worth 4,99. (How bad the free version must be! Wait, didnt he actually describe the free version, and that only partially?)
I would call this “biased” (maybe unintentionally).
But, isnt comodo the only product that gets described by lacks and a low price there? (While existing good and necessary CIS features were not mentioned at all?)
The high price and the gimmick features, thats how you impress … SUPERficial
Yes, actually you have to go to the full review Comodo Internet Security Pro 2012 | PCMag to better understand CIS pros and cons (in pcmag’s opinion, of course):
Very inexpensive. Very good malware blocking. GeekBuddy remote help extremely effective at cleaning up malware, especially rootkits. Very little effect on performance.
Low ratings from independent labs. Firewall’s program control effectively off by default. Defense+ popups force uninformed user to make security decisions. No parental control, antispam, antiphishing, or privacy protection.
I have had Comodo CIS for over three or more years, and…
EXCEPT for one issue with my game Diablo III when trying to battle Magdah, and everything starts to move at a turtle pace until disabling +D and the antivirus when battling her. Then afterwards turning it back on and everything works great!! Other than that…NOTHING!
Hmm, that’s strange never ran into that problem with anything in Diablo III…I would get very choppy spots but that was because my graphics card isnt great but once NVidia updated the drivers everything was back to smoothness. I got CAV - Stateful, FW - Safe Mode, D+ - Safe Mode, Sandbox - Enabled and didn’t install with Game Mode.
I don’t agree. One test means nothing. Comodo AV now is one of the best in the whole AV market. I would even go to say that it’s the most over-protective AV today. Having single engine and have such detection is crazy. On top of that real-time protection is leading all the way. I used many AV’s. I would know.
Test it yourself instead of saying something wrong … http://threatcenter.crdf.fr/?Stats
Btw, today CAV is better than Panda, Symantec … Take Symantec for example : Their AV is not performant isn’t it ? Look at the tests on live malware from the internet it oftens block everything thanks to cloud tech i.e Norton Insight and ProActive (SONAR).
Antivirus companies see no threat in the new security mechanisms Win8
Windows Defender - full integrated anti-virus, previously known as Microsoft Security Essentials.
«Microsoft has built into Windows 8 fully installed…» — Anti-Malware - an organization dedicated to advertising Kasperskiy AV, including, testing, anti-virus solutions.
«I fear that with the increasing popularity of the new operating system, independent antivirus vendors will inevitably lose its customer base paid products. Segment of personal users will wring their secure operating systems and free antivirus. It remains to bet on the segment of business users, and gradually migrate to the adjacent segments of the market» — said the expert Anti-Malware
The more I think about CIS the more I think it should be nominated for the “Nobel Prize” (Turing Award). It’s really a revolutionary product. It’s a shame that people misinformed about computer security today.
