Interop: Is anti-malware endpoint security?
NEW YORK. Gotta love the New York IT crowd. In a session at Interop on Endpoint security a member of the audience accosted the panel made up of experts from McAfee, Sophos and Symantec arguing that none of them actually do endpoint security.
"I don't understand why you are all on this panel," the audience member asked. "A lot of the stuff you're talking about strikes me as not being end point security. You're just talking about anti-malware."
To be fair McAfee, Sophos and Symantec all do more than just anti-malware now but still, it's always interesting to see what people think and where perceptions are at.
