WOT Partnering with Panda Security
« on: August 10, 2009, 05:10:19 AM »
WOT is partnering with Panda Security.

Does this mean we have to discontinue using WOT and use SiteAdvisor?
Avast 6.0, MalwareByte's Anti-Malware, CCleaner, Defraggler, DownloadHelper, WOT, NoScript, KeyScrambler, Thunderbird, Firefox, Windows XP SP3.

It might be easier to get an answer straight from the horse's mouth...

You'll know it's from Panda when you see the Panda avatar as a trusted source on a WOT scorecard. WOT users will also receive special offers for extended trials of Panda anti-virus products periodically. Panda customers can complement their virus protection with WOT's safe browser tool from the Panda-WOT download site .

It looks like they're just combining the two technologies.

Whilst it should mean nothing more that scythe944 said, if it meant anything else I would just drop it, there is no way I would go back to the seriously flawed (read out of date site assessments) SiteAdvisor.

It's not much more than a distribution agreement, AFAIK.
If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.
