Moving to the Forefront

I'm not a fan of Microsoft's entry into the security market, at least when it moves into areas that were pioneered by third parties that fixed holes Microsoft should have plugged in the first place. But it is hard to argue with a complete solution, no matter who it comes from, and that is what Microsoft's Forefront is fast becoming.

At the recent RSA security show in San Francisco, Microsoft announced a management console to watch and control a variety of Forefront tools, whether they protect desktops, Exchange or SharePoint.
