Kaspersky CEO Ridicules Intel’s McAfee Security Unit
Kaspersky Lab CEO Eugene Kaspersky Tuesday ridiculed antivirus competitor McAfee as a less formidable and focused competitor now that it’s part of chip giant Intel (NSDQ:INTC).
What’s more, the Kaspersky CEO said that Intel has failed to deliver on its once highly touted plan to drive security breakthroughs by tightly integrating security software with Intel chips.
“They promised to kill the IT security market with a new hardware-based platform,” said Kaspersky in a luncheon meeting with reporters in Boston. “I don’t believe in that. It is like a Hollywood story.”
