i should re-phrase: how many participants were included in this test and how were they chosen?
I mean this is an important process cos If you were to choose a biased group, then you would have biased result and also if you were to choose a small number, then it wouldn’t be statistically significant.
Out of the 50 million endpoints that employ the OESIS Framework, OPSWAT collected data from tens of thousands of volunteers. The information collected from OPSWAT’s various tools had a high rate of correlation. That is to say, when comparing reports, despite these tools having different uses, percentages of antivirus product usage were consistent. This consistency would suggest our data has a high degree of reliability.
The volunteer group was questioned elsewhere.
We're expecting a market share research from Citibank. But it was not published (yet).
Anyway, we can see that the free antivirus vendors have take quite a lot of the market.
Does Comodo have any different info about the market share? Can it be disclosed?
It won’t worth nothing just bash the Oesis’ one just for fun…
They tell you on their site how the data was collected. It comes from people who have their software installed that reports all the installed applications. Even given that, I think it’s far more accurate than a site that lets people vote over and over again with no restrictions like the one mentioned in another thread where Comodo users are obviously stuffing the ballot box.
I used to be one of those 99% running one of the popular Antivirus programs until it failed horribly and my computer became infected. Up until then I had no need for the top rated Internet Security program, but 1 1/2 years ago I installed CIS v3.8 and I haven’t had so much as one detected piece of Malware since then.
And I think that may just be Melih’s strategy in getting people to part with their popularly used name brands is to put the best testing Comodo Internet Security Suite out there and when people finally do get infected using the ‘popular’ brands of Internet Security they will seek better protection by stepping up and installing CIS.
Hmm. Why I didn’t see A “No.1 Best in Global Leading Know-How International Brand-Name” security program from Korea ?
They’re lying me :o
(Note. I’m just ironic them. Don’t be serious.)
However local is still local provider.
So some vendor are based on amount of user that not a quite well known name.
For example 360safe was china brand with no English version But it’s based on various AV engine.
to bring more usability into cis and other similar software you need an complete new windows…
-windows architekture is bad ,only build for usability and not really for security
-too many security holes ,too slow development with their massive ressources…
an complete secure os has always limitations in usability ,see openbsd/freebsd…
the reason is: the people must change themselves to understand the word “security”
security is not the os ,also not any software who provides an more secure system… for security is always need to work together with the system ,to make an os secure. but the most people are didnt interested in security ,they will only usability & these are the 1st people who complain when any security problem appear :-TD
