Should you trust Microsoft to sell you anti virus, firewall and anti spyware technology that protects users against flaws in its own operating system?
Symantec's chief executive John Thompson at the RSA Conference this week said that he believes that you shouldn't. In fact, he claims, it's a huge conflict of interest. He then goes on to compare the dilemma to that of a book keeper auditing his own books, which is as relevant as a pink elephant parading over the Golden Gate Bridge.
But Thompson does have a point in arguing that no single company can provide a security resolution. Partnerships are inevitable and required.
