Kaspersky pragmatic about Microsoft’s free security

Still room in the anti-malware market

Kaspersky’s David Emm has admitted that Microsoft’s free Security Essentials package will have a big effect on the anti-malware market but insisted that there is still room for companies to produce quality security software.

Microsoft Security Essentials is likely to have a huge impact, allowing people to install a free piece of software which will provide top-level security against malware such as viruses and Trojans.

This is likely to pinch the market for traditional PC Security companies such as Kaspersky, but Emm is upbeat about the new arrival and insists that people will still look for added functionality.
