I am giving up trying to keep up with the SSL scanning discussions in the ESET version 9 beta thread. My head is spinning after reading that and also after remembering that there were some problems with Kaspersky's implementation a few months ago. So, now I am wondering why vendors implement this capability if it is causes so many potential problems. Do the overall benefits outweigh the potential problems? Are some vendors feeling pressure to keep up with the competition? Or, is this a case where the potential negative outcomes are rare and the problems are being blown out of proportion? Thanks for any ideas you can share.
