New security features for Windows
In a further attempt to improve security, Microsoft has announced the release of Service Packs for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP for the second half of this year.
New shielding measures will allow enterprises using Windows Server 2003 to block access to their systems from companies whose security procedures are not up to standard.
For those using Windows XP, Service Pack 2 will include a new security tool to stop viruses and worms by monitoring known vulnerabilities, removing the need for the IT department to immediately patch problems.
