Microsoft and Computer Security in 2005
Real progress has been made, but challenges remain in the ongoing battle against increasingly sophisticated world-of-software threats.
In the ongoing challenge to deliver a safer, more secure computing experience for PC users, Microsoft and its industry partners in 2005 made considerable progress on the security front with achievements such as greater customer awareness of the existence of spam, viruses, spyware and other security threats, as well as the availability of more effective and powerful software protections against software attacks and security breaches, which has resulted in improved security for Microsoft customers.
“At Microsoft, we’re focused on protecting customers from current and emerging cyber security threats,” says Mike Nash, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s Security Technology Unit. “Our strategy is to make the right technology investments, to provide clear guidance to our customers about how to stay better protected, and address industry-wide challenges through partnerships in the public and private sectors.”
