Security Magazines: Reality vs. Fiction

July 5, 2008

During the weekend I have read several articles that I had interest in from a number of security magazines / online publications.

What I have found is that most of the reporters that wrote these articles simply do not have the experience to know when they are being fed with FUD.
There is a big difference between on paper to the real world of deployment in the field. Some technologies which look great simply cannot scale or do not work as expected in the real world.

The problem is with the experience of the reporter that writes about the technology. The experience is not always there (there are exceptions of course) and therefore the FUD is spade.
