    How many antivirus vendors?

    ... does Microsoft recognise? How many of these do you recognise?!

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Re: How many antivirus vendors?

    Is it cheating to look at the first few words of the description where Microsoft lists a recognizable product name?

    I'm familiar in varying degrees with 19 of these; evaluated some of their products for our firm, dealt with some of them as an attorney, and read about some of them here in the Lounge.

    What's interesting are how few there seem to be after all the acquisitions by CA, McAfee, Microsoft and Symantec over the years.

    I "recognise" 10 of the names but only would have associated 8 of them with AV s/w.
