Microsoft to outline security plans

Microsoft plans to outline its complete strategy as regards security and security products in the very near future. The company has come under fire in recent months for the large number of security problems found in its products, most especially in the Internet Explorer browser. Added to that, the problems of phishing, spyware and viruses are now getting out of control, and the company has pledged to deal with this.

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and security VP Mike Nash touch down in Germany tomorrow to talk about, among other things, the company’s forthcoming enterprise anti-spyware offering. There’s been a consumer spyware product in development since January, and now a corporate version seems on the cards, offering management and deployment support.
