sponsored by McAfee, Inc.

It’s a guessing game to know if a new piece of software is good (safe) or bad (malicious or disruptive). If you treat the unknown as good until proven bad, then you take on risk of system downtime or data loss and the costs of patching and service desk calls. If you assume it’s guilty until proven innocent, you may deprive users of useful tools and content.
