ICSA certification -- ???

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I saw favorable mention of ICSA certification here so looked for it.

For Win XP home edition I see only McAfee and CA certified.

What's the poop on ICSA?  Meaningful?

Even Microsoft Windows Live OneCare is "certified".

Need I say more?

If you are to suggest an employee to a company you tend to suggest
someone close to you that you like rather than someone that you have
no relationship with (however only up until the point that it won't
hurt your credibility). I believe all types of information is somewhat
manipulated by someone's own reality (being them a person or a
company), it is frequently forgotten that the government and companies
are made by humans and therefore are also an expression of our own
nature.

http://www.av-comparatives.org/ is not financed by any specific AV
company, and it doesn't charge the AV companies to do the tests (you
can see from the monthly test results that the "ranking" changes
considerably) and that is exactly how the AV world works right now,
there is no best antivirus, the ranking of virus detection varies
greatly...,
There are usually some 3 or 4 at the top ranking (*bold*usually*bold*)
but virus detection will depend on how efficient the companies were to
identify and collect new viruses samples ( and also the efficiency of
the heuristic analysis to identify mainly viruses and avoid false-
positives, and the engine).

Another point to take into consideration, is that, quantity is not
quality (if an AV blocks many low scripts/worms but doesn't block one
very dangerous and widespread rootkit or trojan it can't really be
considered better than one that does the other way around)...

There is also to take into consideration how much resources and
scanning time but that's another story...

As for ICSA, I would look for AV's certified for XP (no necessarily
Home or Pro) because they are practically the same thing...

The correct thing to say is not "Trust No-one" but "Be sound and
awake" ;)

Varies to do the top ranking (*bold*) but virus, the av works right now,
the av comparatives.org/ is no best results that the top ranking
