Using a Popular Anti-virus program only because of its name?

I have run into many situations in the past months where I see more and more businesses picking an anti-virus name because it is on the news or on a billboard. Does this make it the best? Would you hire an employee who posts their slick resume on the internet without an interview? Many companies are spending their money on marketing instead of what matters, protecting you and your company. Over the years, I have seen many anti-virus programs that were once on the top of their game rest on their laurels and fail in detection and removal of newer viruses and malware.
