Microsoft puts key security under Windows umbrella


As part of its ongoing reorganization, Microsoft on Thursday moved more responsibility for its security efforts into its Windows unit.

The software maker said it will merge its security response unit, its Trustworthy Computing effort, and an engineering excellence product in one group to be led by Scott Charney. That unit will be a part of the Windows Core Operating System Division, now headed by Jon DeVaan.

By moving the unit inside Windows, DeVaan said Microsoft believes it can "become more effective and efficient at understanding what's going on with security." Microsoft puts key security under Windows umbrella | CNET News.com
