Symantec dropping antivirus ?
I was just informed by a fellow employee here at work that she was in a major meeting where it was announced by the high-muckie-muck that Symantec is getting out of the "antivirus business" and that agencies needed to find other protection and products to keep a-v coverage.
Symantec drop SEP? OK, I know I know it's no longer "viruses" so much as malware and attacks - the world has changed and people need to get their heads into the 2010s and out of the 1990s like too many, including management here, is stuck in.
Is this a matter of "semantics" and just a battle of words - or is SEP going away as it exists today?
Enquiring minds want to know - ifit's right I really need to know - and if that's all wrong, where did the BS come from?
When was the last "virus" you found - say an infected file or a boot sector, etc.? Be careful - I mean VIRUS - an infection, not a file or app that doesn't belong. An infection impacts EXISTING files or boot areas, malware, Trojan Horses, etc. are different, they aren't viruses, malware isn't a virus. So when was the last VIRUS you had?
