EtcEtc : Post Script -Top three revolutionary computer business ideas for Microsoft, Google,Symantec

Regular readers might remember our article in 'EtcEtc' Dtd. Aug 4. 2006 (Top three revolutionary computer business ideas for Microsoft, Google,Symantec). Those who joined the party late will do well to scroll down to get a complete download, but essentially, we had recommended an 'Online virus scanning service for home users, similar to a currently operating business model for corporates, where an Enterprise System is monitored, protected from virus attacks and cured, if the firewall fails, by an inhouse I.T team or as is increasingly the trend by a vendor sitting in India.

If you had read the comments, I had a interesting exchange of views with reader 'std', who explained some of the barriers to this idea.

So it came as a pleasant surprize to me, when I read an article, which talks about essentially the same ideas, titled 'Touching Base' by Sobha Menon in the Economic Times on Sunday, Aug 6 '06. I reproduce below an excerpt.


“......this is are enterprise security service, but we have plans to extend it to individuals soon,” says Kaushik(Country Head, Trend Micro). Other services in the pipeline that the individual could look forward too, according to Kaushik, are an anti-virus online monitoring service that was designed for medium and large enterprises with over 400 Pcs.

“We can today bring it down to 30-50 Pcs, but it will take some time before the home user gets a service like that. It would be a a complex technology that can monitor home Pcs 24/7, but it’s being developed — you can expect it next year, perhaps,” says Kaushik.

So it seems that I wasn't so far away in predicting the future, albeit also not alone. Cheers to that!
