Baidu Boasts Over 10 Million Antivirus Software Users

Chinese search engine provider Baidu Inc. formally launched its system tool software named Baidu Guard 1.0 and the company also announced that its anti-virus software has gained over ten million users.

On April 18, 2013, Baidu started the public beta test of its anti-virus software in China and the product was officially launched in June. Baidu claims that its anti-virus software is the first in the industry to promise not to harass users, threaten users, or abuse user privacy. As a Chinese company operating within China's privacy-unfriendly government system, this assertion has yet to be truly seen.

Apart from the anti-virus software, Baidu formally launched another Internet security product: Baidu Guard 1.0. Baidu Guard integrates four major functions, including computer acceleration, system cleanup, anti-virus, and software management. In addition, it provides featured functions like a high risk vulnerabilities fix, computer start-up tips, and product skin change.

Baidu quoted third-party testing statistics, which stated that the killing rate of Baidu anti-virus software is up to 99.9%.
