One of the big new partner opportunities of the next few years is Microsoft's major move into enterprise security. In product terms, the push translates to the "Forefront" brand.

If you want to know more about where Microsoft is going with enterprise server security, the company has scheduled two Forefront Webcasts for next week. Joe Licari, who came to Microsoft with the acquisition of security product vendor Sybari, will talk about the value and opportunities of the Forefront servers on Nov. 8 at 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Pacific Time. Peter Eicher will follow up on Nov. 9 at 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Pacific Time with a technical drilldown.
