Mandiant security software blocking workstation I/O?
Posted on 2013-02-03
A client workstation is showing pathetic I/O performance (read and write). The problem was observed copying a large number of small text files and backing up a large (5G) mySQL database (mySQLServer installed locally).
The laptop is new, good hardware, Win7, 64bit, SSD drive. Antivirus was disabled. The only difference between the machine and other very similar laptops used to compare is: the laptop is part of a corporate environment that requires Mandiant software.
Browsing their website, Mandiant looks like "military-style" security. Their response is total denial.
Has anyone observed the same thing?
