Antivirus ‘Dead’, Says Symantec: New Service Approach On Way.

X

Security company Symantec is moving away from the provision of antivirus software to offer a tailored service, fixing hacking problems rather than stopping them.

Brian Dye, Symantec’s senior vice president for information security, told the Wall Street Journal, that antivirus protection is “dead”. “We don’t think of antivirus as a money maker in any way,” he said.

Dye said that modern antivirus software only stops around 45 percent of attacks on computer systems and lets the rest through.

Symantec will now concentrate on providing business customers with security-as-a-service – tracking intrusions as they occur, advising on the best way to protect data from collection, and finding out who is doing the attacking.
