I have a question for the community at large: has anyone ever produced an IT Security timeline in the US, showing us when major advances in security were made, i.e. firewalls, IDS, IPS, UTM, AV, encryption, etc?
I think this could be not only very interesting, but also helpful in analysis of the market in Europe moving forwards. All I'd have to do is look at what happened 4 years ago in the US and I'd become a visionary in Europe.
It's a serious question however, does such a timeline exist? Let me know if you find one.
