Richard Stiennon: Opportunities from Symantec's Strategic Shift

When I read Richard Stiennon's latest article in Forbes, The Demise of Symantec, I thought it was absolutely fascinating. Richard walks through the process of what happened at Symantec, how it was an acquisition engine for so many years, and now how it's started to decline. I got in touch with Richard and told him I'd like to have him read his article for the podcast, and he responded right away.

What you'll hear in this episode is Richard talking about and reading from his article.

As he writes: "Startups should be targeting the Symantec install base which is already being abandoned, while hiring the Symantec sales teams and partners which have been cast adrift."

Opportunities await. Ongoing research into the IT security industry can be found at Security Yearbook.
