Opinion about Agnitum Outpost Security Suite

Came across this recently

December 30, 2010*— The industry’s first free security suite knocks out competing paid solutions

Quote:
Outpost Security Suite Free outperforms commercial products in proactive security tests, while its "parent" passes 5 antivirus tests in a row.

Touts itself as better than commercial products, currently using ESET Smart security and planning on changing with this Outpost Security Suite

What's the opinion of people who use this software? is it worth switching to?

Hi BlueBear,

Mmm...I've not heard of them yet. In addition to getting opinion here, its worth checking these sorts of claims with independant anti-virus software testers. Try searching for Abnitum with these:

AV-Comparatives - Independent Tests of Anti-Virus Software - Welcome to AV-Comparatives.org

Virus Bulletin : Independent Malware Advice

AV-Test.org Tests of Anti-Virus- and Security-Software
