Thanks for that info. I had missed that takeover.
I will likely add it if a GlassWire user says they use it. Do you use the HP or Bromium version?
You might have noticed that most GlassWire users don’t use endpoint security products that are mainly marketed for corporate environments. At present, apart from Symantec, Cylance is the only one with a vote here despite having the largest market share for corporate endpoint solutions. That lack of market penetration is one reason for consolidation in the industry, like HP buying Bromium.
A related point is that I intend to keep the brands separate. I combined AVG with Avast which is the owner of AVG. But that was a bad idea because we’re more interested in what users prefer than whether it is multi-branded software with the same developer/owner.
P.S. I just looked at the votes and see that Symantec has only 4% votes. Maybe I should add in the Norton brand which has been re-established.
Three results stand out for me:
- Symantec has a high proportion of corporate users.
- McAfee has no votes.
- The high proportion of Malwarebytes users.
Combining these points, this suggests that GlassWire users in this forum who voted in the poll are mainly consumers with an interest in the security of their systems. So mainly end-users who choose their AV software and not corporate users.
