RSA Security Supports Microsoft Security Initiatives
by Mirko Zorz - Thursday, 9 October 2003.
RSA Security offered support for Microsoft Corp.'s newly announced enhanced security initiatives, including a commitment to continued product development and industry education on the impact of information security threats on individuals and businesses.

At Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference yesterday, Microsoft's Chief Executive Officer Steve Ballmer outlined new security initiatives targeted at reducing the vulnerability of computer users around the world, and mentioned how companies like RSA Security can play a role in helping Microsoft carry out this initiative. A study conducted in April 2003 by RSA Security, in conjunction with Opinion Research Corporation, found that consumers consider identity theft and attacks from malicious computer viruses among their top security concerns.

RSA Security and Microsoft have teamed on e-security solutions for several years - most recently adding RSA Security's market-leading two-factor authentication functionality into the Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2000 Feature Pack 1, which is engineered to deliver enhanced security and ease of use beyond that of traditional firewalls for Web server, Microsoft Exchange Server and Exchange Outlook Web Access deployments.
