Will Windows Vista eliminate third party security apps?


.....as I examined each new feature, I started thinking: Microsoft's adding a lot of online stuff to Vista to compete with Google, of course, but Microsoft is also adding new security elements that could dramatically reshape the security software landscape.

......A similar situation exists within the security space. There are cool security tools within Vista, but the best defense against online miscreants is to diversify. I expect third party firewalls to remain the norm, along with third-party Internet security suites. The only casualty from Vista, I think, will be the pay to play antispyware business, which may have already overstayed its welcome.
