+ - Bruce Schneier Weighs in on Lock-in Strategies

Submitted by dhavleak
dhavleak (912889) writes "Wired has an article from Bruce Schneier on the intersection of security technologies and vendor lock-ins in IT. From TFA: With enough lock-in, a company can protect its market share even as it reduces customer service, raises prices, refuses to innovate and otherwise abuses its customer base. It should be no surprise that this sounds like pretty much every experience you've had with IT companies: Once the industry discovered lock-in, everyone started figuring out how to get as much of it as they can."
