PC Tools catching up with Comodo in the latest Matousec test.

PC Tools has caught up with Comodo in the latest Matousec test, Getting a 147/148 bringing it’s total to 99% and has beaten chatty HIPS programs such as OSSS with it’s very user friendly application.
No, this is infact not an advert for PC tools. ;D Just a ranting user going on a bit. (:NRD)
What do y’all think? Have you got any experience with PC tools? What do you think about this?

Interesting…

I think i’ll give it a go, see what happens…

Only Difference; You spend 50 with Comodo You get trustconnect / back up online / geekbuddy and not 99% rating but 100% :slight_smile: Also plus the 7.3 Mil signatures is a great thing too :slight_smile:

Thanks for sharing…

PC Tools catching up with Comodo in the latest
While I don't think much of it. I sure it's still very buggy

Just basing on that score alone, there starting to catch up to Comodo’s old version 4.0. Comodo is currently on 5.3

Everytime Matousec updated there new test. Pctools failed bad and riggs it to pass. Comodo naturally passed without having to do anything to it

Its great to see that we have raised the bar by leading the industry and forcing everyone to follow us. This benefits everyone.

Maybe their interbet security will have different technology that newer than their free firewall.

It’s nice to see that even CIS 4.xxx can give 100% protection. :-TU As I said before I dam I am happy to have comodo. When I didn’t have it I got really ■■■■■■ off and I wondered why comodo didn’t work. If I had the knowledge those days I would have had CIS 4.xx working on my machine.

Anyhow… :-TU

Can anyone tell the to change the link to CIS and to change 4.0 to 5.3

Can anyone tell the to change the link to CIS
Do you mean an older version or a changelog, if it's one of these you can find it here. You can get an older version and it also has changelogs http://www.filehippo.com/download_comodo/

CIS and to change 4.0 to 5.3
You mean have your setting saved for the newer version. I don’t much about that because I like doing things from scratch, but this is what I do know
1)open CIS ison
2)Click on “more”
3)manage my configuration or if you have a older version it would be something like import/export (rough idea)

But this Matousec test is probably HIPS test so this results could not be treat generally. Or correct me if I am wrong.

I mean that they should change the link when you click on “Get it now” and the version and also the logo should be up to date since CIS 4 is not supported any more, if I am not mistaking. I am thinking of the homepage design.

at the moments they have

 <p><a href="https://accounts.comodo.com/cfp/management/signup?aid=13" Get it now </a></p> 

that should be changed to

<p><a href="http://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/free-internet-security.php" Get it now </a></p>

It’s more complicated but that should be changed.

I am sorry if I were unclear.

It’s not up to Matousec; It’s up to comodo, they supply the link not Matousec

Thanks

okey thanks :slight_smile: can you tell Melih to change it.

Good to see PC Tools back in the race. Back in the day they was the software to have. But as we see Comodo is still sitting at 100% can’t get any better then that! :-TU

The firewall version that they tested before PC tools internet security was old version 6. I think that the free firewall version 7 would get similar results, considering that threatfire is never updated any more and the last version got horrible results.

That would be why they got 99% and not 100%. See here.

The previous tests where with PC Tools FW only. This is the first time they test the whole suite.
I would like to know how Norton (who owns PC Tools) will deal with this since they had a 40% score.

considering that threatfire is never updated any more
Are you sure? Threatfire is included in PC Tools IS. Or maybe you mean the free version of Threatfire?

I heard lately that this whole test was payed by PC Tools ( or this is mean - by Symantec ). Of course You almost never know if test was payed or not. Or either quite the reverse : You always know that somebody is paying for something to get a better results. This is unforeseen … :o

There's always speculation

LOL...You can always pick some random person on the street to preform the test?? :D

Asking for a paid retest is not an uncommon practice in the security software world.

It does not mean the testing agency is being bribed. It is a one of the services testing sites offer.

Doesn’t it?
How can we tell?

Yes it is

The burden of proof is not with me. I trust until proven otherwise with these things.

And philosophically speaking you can never proof something does not exist. That why conspiracy theories can stick around for decades… :stuck_out_tongue:
