Microsoft launches 'Protect Your Business' program

Microsoft Corporation India announced the 'Protect Your Business' program aimed at IT administrators in small, medium and large enterprises. Under this campaign, Microsoft will roll out various initiatives that will help enterprises secure their IT environment by providing information, tools, guidelines, and updates on a regular basis. As a part of this program Microsoft also announced the immediate availability of the Security Guidance Kit (SGK).

Microsoft had earlier launched the ‘Protect Your PC’ campaign, a program aimed to secure desktops of end users. This initiative includes a ‘Free Virus Support Helpline’ and ‘Windows Security Update CD’.

The ‘Protect Your PC’ and ‘Protect Your Business’ programs are part of Microsoft’s Trustworthy Computing initiative, aimed at educating customers for decisions related to IT security.

Referring to the PWC-CII Information Security Survey 2002-03, Jasminder Gulati, Manager Enterprise Marketing, Microsoft India said, "Within Indian organizations, only 41 percent of the respondents had a comprehensive security policy in place. We realize that a part of issue lies in customers not being aware of what constitutes a good security initiative or policy, or of the measures they can undertake." He added further, "We are committed to enabling businesses to communicate and operate as securely as possible, and are sure that the Security Guidance Kit will help tremendously."

The SGK is aimed at enterprise customers. The kit will serve as a resource pool providing third-party tools, templates and how-to guides for addressing common security concerns of organizations.

Customers can order the Security Guidance Kit at: /india/security.
