Hi,

 

I used to use F-Prot, both at home and as our company wide AV. This was some years ago. I notice that they are now owned by Cyren, and it it much cheaper, for say a 90 user corporate license. Is F-Prot still a good AV product?

 

TIA

F-PROT Antivirus has been around for years but with the increase of so much competition by other vendors, it is not as popular as it used to be.

I have not heard anything negative about it or it's effectiveness going down hill.

Thanks Quietman.

 

For company use I'm thinking of getting F-prot for all our PCs and Malwarebytes Pro also, to replace our soon to be expiring AVG license.  My experience over the last several years is that when users get a nasty, it slides right past our regular AV software and I need to use the free version of MB to clean up the PC. The cost of F-Prot + Mb is not much more than the cost of a license for AVG and other comparable traditional AV products.
