Patches for Patches Could Lead to Tough Questions

So, there’s a patch to patch a patch that patched a patch -- or something like that.

With all of the publicity Microsoft’s security issues get, it’s hard to say how users will greet the company’s entry into the enterprise security market. How can partners sell companies on Microsoft security applications when Redmond’s reputation in that area is, well, less than stellar? One wonders ....

Hey, here’s a coincidence: I just happen to be writing a story on Microsoft’s entry into the security market for RCP (the magazine) right now. If you want to get your thoughts in on this topic, then, send me a message: [email protected]. Oh, and I won’t quote you in the magazine without talking to you and letting you know first. So don’t worry about being blindsided -- just send away. And thanks again for all your feedback.
