ça démarre aujourd”hui à San Francisco : la RSA Conference 2009, évènement où chaque année Microsoft en profite pour faire ses annonces concernant ses produits de sécurité (principalement la gamme Forefront pour ceux qui sont nouveaux sur ce blog :-))

Quoi de nouveau cette année ?

voici un petit extrait de l’annonce presse de Doug Leland (general manager of Microsoft’s Identity and Security Business Group)

“For example, today we are introducing Forefront Online Security for Exchange, a Microsoft Online Service, which protects e-mail from spam and malware. This is the first of our Forefront Online services to complement our software-based Forefront offerings. Note that we have expanded the Forefront brand to cover our portfolio of identity and security solutions. For example, our Identity Lifecycle Manager product is now officially named Forefront Identity Manager. We see the Forefront brand as synonymous with Business Ready Security.

Another important solution in this area is Microsoft code-named “Geneva,” a new set of technologies that make it dramatically easier for customers to build security-enhanced access into software and hosted services.

Two, we are making security experiences and compliance management much simpler and cost-effective for both IT and businesspeople. In support of this, today we are announcing a new, public test version of Forefront, code-named “Stirling.” “Stirling” is an integrated security suite that coordinates protection and visibility across desktops, servers, applications and the network edge.”

…mais aussi :

“Today we are also announcing a broad group of companies supporting and extending the capabilities of Forefront “Stirling,” including Brocade, Guardium, Imperva, Juniper Networks, Kaspersky, Q1 Labs, StillSecure, Sourcefire Inc., Tipping Point and RSA.”

==> et ça c’est super cool :-)
