"Generally speaking, antimalware is antimalware; what you get from one vendor is not much different than what you get from another. Where the market is changing is that there are lots of components required to have a comprehensive strategy. Antimalware alone is not going to cut it. It's hard to buy antimalware alone; vendors are almost forcing you to buy a client suite." -- Natalie Lambert, analyst, Forrester Research
