For the most part, antivirus programs rely on databases of virus signatures to identify malicious code on your computer.

Even though these are now largely stored in the cloud rather than on your hard drive, they are still vendor specific for the most part.

Thus, one company may have identified a threat that another has missed.

The chances of a reputable company not having a signature for a new piece of malware for any length of time is slim but it does happen in the short-term.
