Chapter 12. Viruses and the Damage They Can Do > Antivirus Software Companies

Antivirus Software Companies

Aladdin Knowledge Systems

An Israeli company that develops a wide range of software and hardware products related to computer security. This company is famous for its antivirus software product called eSafe, which has for a while used the antivirus kernel developed by Kaspersky Lab. For more information, go to www.ealaddin.com.

Computer Associates

This American company develops a wide range of computer software, including antiviruses. It has been most notable in its acquisition of competitors. In 1996, Computer Associates (CA) merged with Cheyenne Software, the manufacturer of InocuLAN antivirus, and in 1999 bought Cybec, the author of Vet Antivirus. However, overall, its antivirus products are only average. This is probably due to the dissipation of resources from the mergers; therefore, both the CA antivirus projects are far behind the leaders.
