Microsoft Security Essentials – Free for small-business
Microsoft had changed their license and Microsoft Security Essentials is free for small businesses.
Considering Microsoft’s practices and policies until now, this decision probably stunned the entire AV market.
This decision, taken by Microsoft, comes to help small businesses, with small budgets, for which any investment counts.
Small business owners can now install the Microsoft Security Essentials antivirus on up to 10 computers.
Comodo Antivirus, which develops antivirus software for promotional purposes, which does not impose restrictions regarding the number of computers and which already offers a free version of antivirus for companies, will now have a new competitor on the market.
In the near future, some antivirus vendors could give up on “free for personal use only” licenses and could provide free antivirus software for companies.
