Thursday Jul 8th 2010 by Staff

According to a new study, 42 percent of users rely on free security solutions.

TechWorld: A new report by security vendor Opswat says that while McAfee and Symantec enjoy high awareness, their products don't dominate the market. Instead, the top four security products--Avast Free Antivirus( 11.45 percent), Avira AntiVir Personal Free Antivirus (9.19 percent), AVG Anti-Virus Free (8.6 percent) and Microsoft's Security Essentials (7.48 percent)--are all available for free.

In addition, the report found that free products like these account for 42 percent of the market. It concluded, "It would appear that end users have as much faith in the ability of free antivirus applications to keep them as secure as they do paid antivirus."
