About 4 years ago, while I was working at Avira, I wrote this article for (ISC)2’s blog. Security “for free”? I wrote back then about how to cover all attack vectors for malware. I also wrote about the hidden costs, which many people tend to ignore. These costs are not acquisition costs. They are even not easily visible. I concluded, that it is possible to achieve a decent degree of security without any acquisition costs. However, there are drawbacks and there are hidden maintenance costs. For those who are interested in having software that works for them and not the…

The idea of offering your product or a version of it for free has been a source of much debate. What is FREE and is FREE really, really, free as in gratis? Idea on writing this article came from reading this article on “Minimum Viable Free Product (MVFP)” by Nathan Taylor. Nathan is talking about “Minimum Viable Free Product” and I personally don’t like how “Free” is interpreted. Yes, I did read the book of Chris Anderson about the free products.

But, many times, when we want to add more structure, more processes and order into an operation, exactly this order creates communication channels (read: rules) in such a way that prevents people to communicate with the others. This is a big danger when a company is “getting big(ger)”. Make sure this doesn’t happen in your company !
