Forefront Explained

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. This is one of those areas that Steve Ballmer identified during the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in July as a "with us or against us" decision for Microsoft partners. Lee Pender delved deeper into the issues surrounding Microsoft's security push in our cover story for November.

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.
