We have recently been in discussions with a client over his Anti Virus program for a laptop.
We will always recommend Bit Defender, as it is a brilliant Anti Virus Program, we use it, we trust it, and we will stand by it.
A client has been looking at some Anti Virus Review sites, and has noticed that Bit Defender was placed in 8th place by this particular site, whilst this review sites chosen no 1. I hasten to add that their chosen 'best' anti virus, is one which we have never heard of. Doesn't appear in the site where we actually check for placments of the anti virus programs.
What's more, checking out this site, we find the following in their advertiser disclosure.

So what does this mean for you? Basically in our opinion, the site will list the anti virus vendor who pays them the most money. Irrespective of them actually being a known vendor. If your looking at Anti Virus Review Sites, please bear this in mind, and check their advertiser disclosure pages. They should have one somewhere.
