No, Anti-Virus Software Isn't Dead

I've written before about technology writers declaring things "dead." In short, it is never true.

Today I got an invitation to download a technology white paper about security systems subtitled "Is Anti-Virus Dead." (http://tinyurl.com/cwhfd6, http://preview.tinyurl.com/cwhfd6)

Ya, like email is dead. Entrenched technologies don't die. They change. Their roles change. They may get a new name. They don't die. Saying they do is a cheap, hack (in the bad sense) way to a catchy headline.
