Microsoft Client Protection is a new security product that helps protect business desktops, laptops, and file servers from emerging threats such as spyware and rootkits, as well as viruses and other traditional attacks.
The product is built on proven technology and backed by an innovative global research system. An integrated management console will put IT professionals in control of their environment. Insightful, prioritized reports and alerts will help focus resources on the right issues. Microsoft Client Protection will integrate with existing IT infrastructure such as Active Directory and other software distribution systems, helping to reduce deployment time and maximize value.
The product is currently in development. Microsoft plans to make an early beta of the product available to selected customers later this year. Pricing and licensing will be announced at a later date.
