CeBIT 2013 Video: One Minute With Catalin Cosoi From BitDefender

Catalin Cosoi, chief security strategist at Softwin, explains how to beat the hackers in the long run

Last week, CeBIT exhibition in Hanover brought together hundreds of thousands of technology enthusiasts. Dozens of security software companies displayed their wares on the show floor, among them Softwin, the developers of BitDefender.

BitDefenderThe Romanian company has plenty of experience in both security and CeBIT – it has been making antivirus solutions since 2001. TechWeekEurope has asked Catalin Cosoi, chief security strategist at Softwin, to explain the company’s strategy in just one minute.

“One-minute pitch” is a new format for TechWeekEurope, so leave a comment, and tell us what you think.

Better locksmiths, bigger locks

In the video below, Cosoi talks about recent security breaches and compares hackers to “brilliant locksmiths”. He says that the only way to deal with security threats is to constantly innovate, create new, better locks and thus “raising the cost of an attack”. The somewhat selfish logic goes like this: if a hacker moves to a different target, that’s a win for BitDefender.
