Has DrWeb KATANA been tested with Trend Micro Antivirus+ or Internet Security?


KATANA claims to be a lightweight non-signature anti-virus compatible with any other antivirus. Sounds ambitious and arrogant yet promising, doesn't it?

But has anybody seriously tested it together with Trend Micro? I'm running this pair now on a testing Windows host, so far so good.

Trend Micro detects malware at the same rate as before without KATANA. KATANA sits quietly, Trend Micro doesn't complain either, none of them fights each other as far as I can observe. Does this mean the test has passed successfully?

Pardon my curiosity, did Trend Micro run any specific verification of such compatibility?
