Microsoft's Security Push Rolls On
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer gave a speech on the company's security goals in Munich today.
Any attention paid to these issues by the company's leadership is always welcome at Security Fix. However, the plans Ballmer outlines focus on business markets, not home computing.
The newsworthy part of Ballmer's speech seems to be the announcement that Microsoft would ship a security toolkit for businesses called Microsoft Client Protection that will block viruses, worms, spyware and other threats. According to News.com, Client Protection will be the enterprise-market equivalent of OneCare, the security toolkit for consumers that Microsoft plans to offer on some sort of suscription basis later this year.
[Editor's note: Sometime today Microsoft will release advance notification of security updates for Windows and other software that will be released next week in the company's monthly "Patch Tuesday." We'll analyze the announcement when it's made.]
