Select: Escan Anti-Virus scans files AND data as it...”

Written on: 08/04/2004 by adrianhi (1 review written)

Good Points
Hugely effective at virus finding and suspicious program finding - I mean awesome!
Virus scanning of incoming network traffic.
Kapersky Lab Virus engine (German).
£6.99 at Amazon? silly me I have been paying £35 for it.

Bad Points
Application cosmetically less desirable than some competitors (I don't care about this).
Kapersky Lab Virus engine - Indian software company MWTI application means slighty dodgey quality of written english in manuals and application, still understandable though.
Is more memory hungry when doing full disk scans than competitors, therefore slower to run on older machines.

General Comments
Select: Escan Anti-Virus scans files AND data as it enters your computer on the network - no other anti virus product does this. Updates every 3 hours and consistently rated 100% virus detection rate in lab tests. I have witnessed eScan quarantine and delete viruses in e-mails missed by a Symantec anti-virus product used by an ISP for checking e-mails. I have witnessed eScan trap suspicious and known dangerous scripts and programs embedded in some web sites, I have never seen any other anti-virus product do this.

£6.99 for a product this effective.... only the insane would be without this on their computer.

No longer Kaspersky engine. The newer eScan with Bit Defender and MWAV engines is greatly improved.
