The complete July issue of TechNet Magazine is now online (www.technetmagazine.com/issues/2007/07/).
This issue covers a variety of topics, from Exchange disaster recovery to securing the desktop against malicious ActiveX controls. There is also a good article for anyone interested in SharePoint–Alan Maddison shows you how to implement a far more powerful alternative to Exchange public folders using MOSS 2007.
There is an emphasis on managing today’s mobile workforce. There are two important factors at play in today’s increasingly mobile work environment: access and security. Basically, data needs to be available remotely but at the same time you need to protect that data. We have some interesting articles that focus on the intersection of these two demands. Specifically, there is an overview of how Windows Mobile 6 can improve security in your organization and an in-depth look at smart-card authentication for mobile users.
And on the topic of security, don’t miss the Security Watch column, where Jesper Johansson (who recently published Windows Vista Security: Securing Vista Against Malicious Attacks) discusses tools for managing ACLs.
