Did Intel Buy the Right Company?

AV-Test, an IT consultancy company, just, ummm, tested an array of security tools against Windows 7 and the results were surprising. In fact, I'm not sure they are entirely accurate. I'm not really dissing AV-Test, but two major products failed to get certified: Trend Micro's Internet Security Pro 2010 and McAfee Internet Security 2010.

Microsoft's free Security Essentials 1.0 came out fine, especially for usability (go figure).

What security tools capture your fancy or are subjects of disdain? Send your thoughts to dbarney@redmondmag.com.
