The experts

Chirantan "CJ" Desai, Senior Vice President of the Endpoint & Mobility Group at Symantec

says we are winning when you consider the headlines are driven by a tiny fraction of successful attacks while the vast majority of attempts are nipped in the bud.

Steven Sprague, CEO of Wave Systems

says the situation is bad and getting worse as attacks get more frequent and more sophisticated.
