This collection of tools became the foundation for his first antivirus database which is now one of the most comprehensive and complete collections in cybersecurity, protecting from more than 100 million malicious programs. In 1990 started to gathering team of similar enthusiast researchers to create the AVP Toolkit Pro antivirus program, which was in 1994 recognized as the most effective antivirus software in the world.
