On Disruption

"Disruption occurs when customers in a mature market are presented with a fundamentally different, and far more effective, way to solve a problem. Ultimately, the new markets and value networks created by disruptive products overtake and displace existing market. All detection-based security technologies have proven to be ineffective. … Furthermore, existing security products have also been unable to evolve to keep up with new developments like BYOD, cloud, smartphones and tablets. … As the market embraces this innovative approach, we are able to move towards our ultimate objective—to restore trust in computing." -Gaurav Banga, CEO
