Red Flags.

No name, no reputation, new site within the last few months and registered through GoDaddy. It could very well be legitimate but it could also leave much to be desired as there is no history with it.

Who is Anvei Technology Co. ?

Enough said.

Knowing your samples and the likelihood of your Zoo, that speaks loudly of the very poor quality of this product.

Is this software 100% free? I don't see a way to purchase a 'pro' version, and I don't see any way that they are making money as they don't seem to have anything for sale (at least not from their product pages).

Yes, it does. No buttons or links in the software to purchase anything. I wonder if they are a division of another company, or if they managed to get the money to pay their employees some other way.

Files are digitally signed Anvei Technology Co. LTD. Who is Anvei Technology Co. ?

If it is a Beta version and "...there is no database update in our beta version..." then its a failure as far as I am concerned.

Database version is 01.01.01 but is dated today.

Also, I cannot find anything that their "cloud scanner" actually detects. Does this software do anything? It did delete my temp files when it said it did, but it did it without me clicking 'fix', so I can't say I trust it.

I wonder if they are related to this company:
Anvisoft Technologies India Pvt Ltd 
Website: http://www.innroad.com
Executive Name: P.V. Ratnakar
Address: Anvisoft Technologies India pvt ltd
7th Floor, 2A, Maximus Towers, Mindspace complex,
HYDERABAD,Andhra Pradesh,India 500001
Email Address: ******@innroad.com
Telephone: 91-40-4033****

I'm not seeing anything that links them together, so may just be a similarly named company.

I'm not finding anything else. No information as to who they are and where they came from. From their website I would say that they are clearly not natively English-speaking, but that doesn't exactly tell us much about them.
