Daniel Assouline (Avanquest Group)
AdAware’s focus and strategy is to fight malware in the marketplace by taking installs away from the more aggressive actors. This battle has always positioned us on the delicate line between malware and malware-fighter. We’d love to share some of our experiences and data collected over the last three years to give you a unique perspective on both consumers and malware companies so that we can, collectively, become better at fighting malware.
(This presentation is part of adaware's Platinum Partnership.)
