"A few years ago we threw down the gauntlet, challenging the idea that performance must be traded away in favor of security. To accomplish our mission, we changed ourselves and in the process, changed the entire conversation, shifting the focus to include not only effectiveness and accuracy but minimum performance impact felt by the customer. But we’re an industry leader, so rehashing the previous cutting-edge methods won’t do. In 2011, we’ve picked up our own challenge and turned in a new direction, pushing ourselves to go even farther for the betterment of our customers.
In order to do this, we had to change the game, as not everyone has the same computer system with the same expected applications. Since our products run on all of these systems, we needed to make sure our performance improvements applied to all of our customers, regardless of the system used. It was a logistical challenge, but because of our experience, it’s one we could meet and deliver on."
