Security at the Forefront

Microsoft's security business is getting broader and broader all the time. This week, the company released a beta of its new Forefront client, one aimed squarely at Symantec, McAfee, Sunbelt and all the other security vendors.

Redmond also has specific tools, including just-launched protections for Exchange and SharePoint.

Interestingly, Forefront uses scan engines from CA and Sophos, but not Symantec, McAfee and others that have complained about Microsoft's plans.
