Symantec and McAfee 'should have prepared better' for Vista


Symantec and McAfee "should have prepared better" for Microsoft Vista, rival IT security firm Sophos claimed today.

Symantec and McAfee have recently made high profile complaints that they are being "locked out" of the Vista operating system kernel by Microsoft's PatchGuard technology. It is claimed that this allegedly anti-competitive move by Microsoft will prevent security firms from developing host intrusion prevention (HIPS) systems for Vista to protect against new malware.
