REDWOOD SHORES, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Total Defense, Inc., the leading provider of solutions to combat the growing threat of cybercrime, today announced that its security products have made significant strides in market share according to a recent North American antivirus software report issued by OPSWAT. According to the report, Total Defense was the fastest growing paid AntiVirus solution in North America, quadrupling its market share in just six months, outpacing the share of many of its competitors including McAfee, Trend Micro and Kaspersky.
“We have seen a considerable uptick in consumers adopting Total Defense AntiVirus based on the data we’ve analyzed on more than 120,000 endpoints worldwide over the past year,” said Derek Bass, Marketing Associate at OPSWAT.
The Quarterly OPSWAT market share report for June 2012 shows usage data for security applications on Windows systems. The data is collected using OPSWAT’s AppRemover tool and indicates market share based on the applications installed on those computers that ran the tool.
“Since the inception of Total Defense, we have been focused on significant improvements in the detection and removal capabilities of our Anti-Virus product to help combat the dramatic rise in both malware and cybercrime,” said Paul Lipman, CEO of Total Defense. “It’s become abundantly clear that the traditional approach to security is not working and we are encouraged that customers are recognizing the value of our products at such a rapid rate. To be recognized by OPSWAT as one of the leading vendors in the highly competitive antivirus market is a testament to our product’s robust strength, the depth of our relationships with our channel partners, and our commitment to provide a superior virus protection solution to our customers.”
