Last week, I received an email from Trend Micro bashing Symantec Endpoint Protection 11. This seemed like kind of a desperate move. If Trend is truly a top tier AV company why do they need to take shots at Symantec?
ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s something you need to know about Symantec Endpoint Security. Going to version 11.0 requires at least one reboot, frequently two. If you are on version 9.0 or older, Symantec recommends a full rip and replace. Now that’s a cumbersome migration!
I guess Trend feels that Symantec AV admins are rather frustrated with the product and they are trying to tap into that.
Here’s a link to a Symantec Product Manager’s take on the Trend email.
