Among the diamond covers for mobile phones all the way to the best of breed technology from Iran, the traditional security hall at Cebit has stretched to almost 3 halls and some vendors are extended out to the prestigious hall 1. The exhibitors say this year Cebit is better then last year, the visitors are flooding the halls.
- UTM is hot and unified messaging is red hot.
- Image spam is the talk of the day, some companies claim they are about to complete the development of the solution for this problem.
- Everyone admits the spammers are good because the security vendors “like Commtouch” are very good! (according to Trendmicro Anti-malware CTO)
And probably as the last resort to fight malware attacks, G-Data resurected the famous performer Guildo Horn of “Der Meister Rockt” and star of Eurovision songwritting contest, for a live show at the booth. He didn’t stop the image-based spam, but nobody could resist the great opportunity to sip a drink.
And finally, I leave you with a question to ponder:
“If you use 30 days free trial of AV and AS from every vendor at Cebit – can you reach 365 free of charge “safe days”?”
