SecureAge SecureAPlus - ESET engine used legally?


Recommended Posts

I have seen a Antivirus system (SecureAPlus from SecureAge) which offers a product which scans files online with different engines.

No it's not Virustotal. ;)


It seems to be designed as a normal antivirus system. (which is different to VirusTotal)

They also have a free version and a paid version there.


So on their website they state:

**The 12 engines that the SecureAPlus Universal AV uses are Emsisoft, Avira, Sophos, McAfee, Microsoft Security Essential, ESET, Bitdefender, AVG, Norman, Quick Heal, Total Defense and Clamwin.


So the only thing I'd like to ask is: Is the ESET engine used legally?

Afaik yes they are, but I have no idea how this partner stuff works so I can't say more than that, and from whom they bought the engine bundle. They (SAP) are active on malwaretips and wilders incase you would like to ask the question to SAP directly.


But I don't believe the engine(s) work the same way locally on the PC as if you for example would use ESET's, Avira's or Bitdefender's own products.
