Has Microsoft got the antivirus companies nervous?

Microsoft’s free antivirus offering, Microsoft Security Essentials downloads have crossed 2.6 million since its launch  two weeks back.

And its doing well! Users of MSE are indeed very satisfied with its performance! Given this scenario, the security companies with a view to holding on to their existing users and getting new ones, have resorted to giving away free 6m/12m licenses of their paid versions.

Look around you, you now have so many anti-virus companies offering licenses for their paid versions, albeit for a limited period of time, absolutely FREE.

Microsoft sure has made some folks nervous; brave statements not withstanding!
