Q&A: Microsoft Security Chief Sees New Vistas

Ben Fathi knows a thing or two about security. He spent the first half of his 24 year career working as an operating system developer, before moving to management.

His new job as corporate vice president of Microsoft's security technology unit will give him a higher profile outside of the company.
