Q&A: Symantec CEO On Split, New Security-Focused Channel Vision And Apple Vs. FBI
What do you think of the whole Apple-FBI deal?
Since encryption is part of our portfolio, we're strong believers in encryption. Privacy and security we view as flip sides of the same coin. You can't have privacy without having strong security. We are big believers in encryption. We would think a "backdoor" is a terrible idea, because once you create that, you don't know whether good guys are using that or bad guys are using that. We would oppose any efforts to create backdoors in the software.
