Fairfield, CT (PRWEB) November 7, 2010

Defender Pro Security Software issued a very strong response today regarding the recent Forbes article on Symantec Corporations Norton Anti Virus use of Scareware Messaging Tactics to literally scare their customers into renewing.

“This would never happen and will never happen at Defender Pro, our customers renew because they feel safe with Defender Pro, not scared,” stated Dan Van Hoose, spokesperson for the company. The greatest source of technical issues the Defender Pro support team deals with on a day to day basis is the Malware programs that infiltrate the average consumer’s computer and shuts it down. For one of the top programs in the AV industry to resort to such tactics is very disturbing and makes you sit up and ask who is really behind these rogue malware programs.

“We have to defend ourselves day in and day out from these unethical companies and individuals who use the names of the top programs to disguise their true intentions of phishing for credit card numbers and other personal information, said Van Hoose.” While all Anti Virus developers are striving for the “Lions Share” of the consumers business, most Anti Virus companies are also in an unofficial partnership to combat these rogue programs that use the reputations of the legitimate software publishers to push their scareware tactics to secure credit card information. “In that regard we truly are all on the same team”, stated Van Hoose.
