    A company that has gotten into trouble through mismanagement or not, causing many people to lose their jobs, and all that the reset of the security industry can do is laugh and make jokes about it, probably due to Norse being in the spot light before hand and them wishing it had been them, it is just disgraceful. They are all just scum if they think that is fine.

    I'm not surprised they're having problems...

    I tried to get that threat map working in any browser at home, failed, e-mailed them for advice, no reply, but I now get* spammed to death on their mailling list.

    Much ado About Nothing

    Surprised at the dog piling on Norse over absolutely nothing. Seems like a bunch basement dwellers hoping for their demise. Here is what we know:

    CEO of a cash-flush start up doesn't control his burn rate and underestimates the sales cycle (that has NEVER happened in the history of start ups!). Leads to layoffs and canning the CEO- Smart move IMO.

    Disgruntled employees bash company (that also NEVER happens).

    A competitor from a company younger than Norse disparages their methodology in his blog (Another shocking revelation- I can't believe a competitor would question their work).

    A hack blogger posts a hatchet piece constructed of numerous falsehoods, irrelevant information, quotes from the aforementioned disgruntled employees all why trying to paint a salacious picture of a company that apparently rejected his solicitation of assets. Vindictive? Maybe. Irresponsible? Definitely. Wonder if he has needed to lawyer up yet. If I were Norse, I would drop the hammer.

    Apparently the company still exists and is still doing their thing with 40% of the staff. Whatever. Clearly this is soap opera garbage that has wadded the panties of those haters who wait in the wings hoping for others to fail.
