Partner Watch, Nov. 14

Winternals to present on dealing with malware at InnoTech conference.

Winternals Software announced Thursday that it will be presenting "Understanding and Fighting Malware: Viruses, Spyware, and Rootkits" at InnoTech in Austin, Texas, on Nov. 16. The presentation will be conducted by Greg Valentine, manager of technical sales at Winternals.

The presentation was developed by Mark Russinovich, chief software architect and co-founder of Winternals Software. Russinovich is a Windows operating system expert who recently discovered DRM rootkit software on an audio CD from Sony.

"It's difficult for corporate IT professionals to remain current on the malicious software attacks that are constantly evolving and threatening the security of their networks," Valentine said. "Windows administrators need solutions for preventing malware attacks, but also need the skills and tools for reactively removing malware that does manage to infiltrate their systems."

InnoTech is a one-day business and technology conference and exhibition that highlights technology development opportunities and showcases products and services currently used in business.

Winternals Software is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner based in Austin, Texas.
