The Post Antivirus Cybersecurity Industry
 
03:50
As part of the Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB) Leadership Salon series, KPCB General Partner Ted Schlein recently hosted a panel of cybersecurity experts intent on reshaping the way the tech industry protects information. Panelists included Ionic Security Founder and CTO Adam Ghetti, Shape Security CEO Derek Smith, and AlienVault CEO Barmak Meftah. Symantec recently declared that antivirus software is now obsolete. Ted Schlein wonders what effect this news will have on the security sector and asked the panelists to weigh in. Adam Ghetti thinks the news is “almost liberating (…) because the industry itself has spent a lot of time evolving and very rarely rebooting.” Derek Smith agrees, since this “forces the industry to acknowledge that there is no possible way that they can defend the endpoint.” Barmak Meftah adds that this announcement should have been made ten years ago, since the security industry has already known that it needs to move beyond antivirus but hadn’t publicly acknowledged it.
