New Security Initiatives Make Trustworthy Computing Actionable for IT Professionals
Today at Microsoft® Tech·Ed, Scott Charney, chief trustworthy computing strategist at Microsoft Corp., announced several new security initiatives that continue the company's efforts to make Trustworthy Computing a reality for computer users everywhere. In his keynote presentation, Charney also addressed the efforts Microsoft is making to improve the security, privacy and reliability of its products and services, and highlighted steps enterprises can take to help them become and stay secure.
"Microsoft is beginning to make real progress in Trustworthy Computing on behalf of our customers and partners, particularly in the way we think about, design and develop our products and services to be more secure, reliable and privacy-compliant from the start," Charney said. "Although much work remains to be done, we are delivering tools and resources so customers and partners can successfully manage their networks for optimum security in deployment."
During his keynote speech, Charney and Nico Popp, vice president of product development in the Security Services Division at VeriSign Inc., announced plans to develop several security initiatives for enterprise customers. These initiatives include public key infrastructure (PKI) autoenrollment of VeriSign certificates, interoperability of certificate authorities and secure mobile access, all of which would be built on the Microsoft Windows Server (TM) 2003 PKI platform.
