Saturday, April 29, 2006
This is what has been taken from ewido's site :
In just two years, Ewido Networks developed award-winning anti-malware technologies that share the same user-friendly approach found in GRISOFT's AVG antivirus and firewall products. The software's pro-active approach to fighting malware, based on advanced detection methods, will be a significant component of the next generation scanning engine for AVG security products. "The entire team at Ewido is looking forward to sharing their experiences and strong know-how in the field of malware protection with GRISOFT," said Andreas Rudyk, co-founder and managing director at Ewido Networks.

We hope to see that now both these softwares keep on coming as a free product too. They both have free versions of their softwares and I hope Girsoft keeps the free versions forever.
