Word on the street: Webroot just snagged McAfee’s Senior VP of Corporate Development, Seksom Suriyapa, to become Sr. VP of Business Development over at Webroot.

Why interesting? It shows the continuing and growing legitimacy (and market share gains) of antispyware companies in a space that should be owned by the AV companies.  Replacing the AV companies’ hegemony in security is a new breed of innovative security companies like Webroot and PC Tools (and I daresay Sunbelt).

Mr. Buggy whip: Meet your friend, Mr. AV.
