Microsoft Enterprise Anti-Spyware Plans Take Shape

From eWeek
"Microsoft moved a step closer to becoming a key player in the Internet security business with the announcement Thursday of a new enterprise-class anti-spyware product featuring technology to thwart viruses, worms and kernel rootkits.

The new offering, dubbed Microsoft Client Protection, will go into limited beta before year-end with a full rollout expected in 2006.

Details on pricing and licensing are being kept under wraps.

The announcement, which came during a meeting between chief executive Steve Ballmer and business partners in Munich, Germany, is the culmination of a year-long push by the world’s largest software maker to take on entrenched security vendors in the anti-virus/anti-spyware business.
