Free AV Software? Nothing is free…

June 10, 2010 — Leave a comment

Just returning from MessageLabs in NYC…I was catching up on some reading and came across this alarming figure in USAToday: $163,167,539.95 in revenue brought in by fake AV software sales!  I get this with clients all the time – my customers are using free AV software, but this isn’t even free.  Check out how companies where duped into downloading and paying for fake AV software.  Then use this in future sales to combat the objections to working with specialists like yourself to bring in proven security products.
