Reducing the cost and complexity of web vulnerability management

Dell's tempting no anti-virus included in price offer

Our informant Simon Lynch said he's decided to take up this splendid offer, and has stumped the one eurocent "to see what comes in the box". Time will tell, although Simon should consider himself lucky he's not ordering from HP, in which case he'd probably receive a really big box containing 16 smaller boxes, each marked: "There is nothing in this box." ®
