Today, the Identity and Security Business Group unveiled its Business Ready Security strategy and disclosed product and service updates, including the introduction of Forefront Online Security for Exchange, “Stirling” beta 2 availability and expansion of the Forefront brand. We are also announcing a broad group of companies supporting and extending the capabilities of Forefront “Stirling.”
As part of introducing Business Ready Security, Microsoft is highlighting customers who are betting on Microsoft’s security solutions.
