Has anyone ever asked you where you see yourself in five years? If we were to pose that question to Trend Micro, the security firm would say it sees itself ahead of Symantec.
According to company founder and chairman Steve Chang, Trend Micro, currently the world's second largest security software and services firm, has set a goal to jump ahead of Symantec in five years through its development for cloud computing.
Trend Micro has already spent $300 million in R&D over the past four years building a cloud computing infrastructure, and going forward, Chang believes this will be key in taking the No. 1 spot. Chang says there's a ton of market potential in the security of server virtualization, mobile Internet connectivity, and handheld devices, all of which his company is in position to provide for.
But will it be enough to overtake Symantec? We'll have the answer for you in five years.
