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.
