An analyst working in the field of software said that "long-term competitive threat," adding that its impact on the near-term seems to be limited, and officials confirmed in Symantec and McAfee, they do not believe that the "Moro" isn''t a threat to their products.
For its part, Microsoft made it clear that the "Moro" features will be essential to combat the large number of viruses which are likely to make it similar to the products, which ends in the hands of consumers at a low price of Symantec and McAfee, which costs about 40$ per annum.
