Dr Solomon's is stepping up its campaign to steal unhappy IBM Anti Virus users by offering them a tool which switches the two products over.
Dr Solomon?s has been targeting IBM Anti Virus customers since Big Blue said it will halt development of the product and assign its customer base to rival Symantec.
Using network distribution capabilites, the conversion tool automatically locates and uninstalls IBM Anti Virus software, and replaces it with Dr Solomon's Anti Virus toolkit.
Dr Solomon?s is hoping particularly to capture IBM OS/2 users which is currently not supported by Symantec. However, IBM has said it will offer users protection from new viruses until the end of this year, when Symantec will have a product available.
"The bottom line is we haven't left any of our customers exposed," said Mike Collins, brand manager for networking software, IBM UK.
