A CNET post says Vista will hit third party security software vendors. You have to look inward, and make some decisions:
– If you are a venture investor in Webroot, do you go for the IPO now, or assume Vista will actually get released in 2009?
– If your margin account hasn’t been used to pay off your credit cards (that is, after you tapped out your home equity line) do you short Symantec and McAfee?
– If you are Checkpoint, do you hire John Ashcroft to help you get those acquisitions done before it’s too late?
– If you run OS X or Linux, do you even care?
More suggestions from the audience are much appreciated.
A timely study says security vendors can rest easy.
John Thompson of Symantec doesn’t sound worried – in fact he sounds somewhat incredulous.
