Here are some of the Indian antivirus companies that you can try -

1. Quickheal

This company is from Pune, India. They started in 1993 and now are shipping their products all over the world. The product has very good firewall and antivirus options. On the malware protection issue, however not many tests favor quickheal. It's good if you need protection against most common virus and threats.

2. Net Protector AntiVirus

Another Pune based anti virus company. They have more focus on malware, spyware and common virus found on the internet. The protection offered by them can be compared with the AVG suite.

3. Tech Guard Antivirus

This antivirus company formed by BITS pilani graduate students and now expanded with their "Guard" brand for multiple type of protection. The brand is getting popular lately as one of the good product for internet security. Suitable for internet protection and spywares.

4. K7 Total Security

Chennai based product company, focuses on most common virus and internet threats. The product protects from virus, spyware, firewall and email spam. Not good for malware but a good internet security product as per reviews.

5. eScan Antivirus

Another company from Maharashtra and is popular among small business and startups. The company makes internet security product. Not much known for malware and rootkit removal but like other brands mentioned here, it does decent job of virus removal.

Which one to buy? This a bit subjective considering not many Indian antivirus companies are known for tackling different types of security threats. For example, when it comes to malware protection and rootkit removal, you should definitely need to buy dedicated program as above antivirus products can't do that. If you decide to choose on the basis of system performance under antirvius program and virus removal process, you'd find good reviews for two antivirus brands from India - Quickheal and eScan. These two also have updated definition of virus removal and also better internet security policies in it's product. So you can choose among these two product.
