    Is Insight really an "industry first", as claimed by Symantec? Or is Kaspersky iClean? This is a wikipedia dispute.

    Hmm I'm not too sure about this one...iswift hasn't got anything to do with "good" files or files but HIPS in KIS v2009 does use digital signatures and a whitelist database to judge which files should be restricted/scanned and which aren't.

    I believe the strings attached are:

    a) first in consumer market
    b) first to leverage data from other computers

    Many ideas get implemented eventually from vendor to vendor. It's where marketing comes into play.
