About FatSecurity.com

FatSecurity.com is a project started by two guys with a lot of experience in internet security, web technology, and online marketing.

Our Goal

We strive to present crucial information to you - our readers - in the best form possible to help you make the best decision when choosing an antivirus software.

Our Motivation

When we approached this project we discovered a serious problem:

It’s virtually impossible to find reliable antivirus reviews which are also easily understood by the average user.

While completely unbiased testing organizations provide very valuable information, they don’t provide their data in a format which every user can easily understand.

On the other hand, the majority of antivirus review sites that exist today are all about making as much money as possible even at the expense of your eventual satisfaction from the products they recommend.

Their reviews are lacking that X-factor and are unsatisfyingly shallow, to say the least.

By browsing these antivirus review sites, you will find that many of them recommend brands that might be reliable and trustworthy, but can be one of the lower rated AV software available today in terms of performance and detection rates. What' more, some of the vendors they recommend are being ripped to shreds on technological forums and community sites like reddit.

How are we different?

We care about the customer.

It’s that simple.

Yes, we still earn a commission for some of the sales made through our website, but this commission doesn’t increase the price our referred users receive.

On the contrary:

We partner with some AV vendors to provide our users better deals which leads to a win-win-win situation:

  • The user receives the best price
  • The vendor gets a new customer
  • We receive a commission

What do we actually do?

We research antivirus software, run in-house tests, and bring you the final conclusions in an easy-to-understand and unique format.

How we get paid

When you click some of our links you receive a special price while we receive a commission for your purchase, which is usually around 20% of the amount you pay.

Without our link, more often than not, you would pay more and we would receive nothing.

This is why we encourage you to use our links if you feel that our work contributed to your buying decision, or if you just feel like we did a good job and we deserve it.
