Microsoft Response Point 1.0 Service Pack 2

Brief Description

Microsoft® Response Point™ is phone system software designed for small businesses with 1 to 50 employees. The intuitive management programs, voice-activated user interface, and rich feature set make Response Point easy to configure, manage, and use. D-Link, Syspine, and Aastra offer complete systems that are bundled in affordable starter packages.

Overview

Microsoft® Response Point™ 1.0 Service Pack 2 (SP2) introduces new-and-improved features that expand your voice service choices, empower the administrator to better manage the system, and enhance the phone system experience for everyday users and callers.
In Service Pack 2, Response Point adds "digital service" to the list of flexible voice service options to help balance the voice and data communication demands of your growing small business. Digital service is transmitted through an enterprise-grade hard-wire connection. "T1" (in the U.S.), "E1" (in Europe),"PRI," or "ISDN" service providers will run a special cable into your office building, similar to the cabling installed by a telco. Digital service lines normally have up to 24 rotating channels that can deliver voice and data packets to phone system components. Using Response Point Administrator, you can configure the digital gateway device required for this voice service. Some digital service providers may offer fractional digital service, which means you purchase only a portion of the circuit that may have only 8 available channels instead of 24.
Response Point Administrator gives you more control over how you manage the system. In this service pack, you can schedule the Automated Receptionist to handle calls after-hours, on holidays, and during business closures; enable access to a virtual private network (VPN), giving employees in remote locations secured access to the resources on the local area network (LAN); configure hybrid gateway devices that have both FXO and FXS ports, or that can be used for either analog or digital service; reduce speech misrecognition, often caused by background noise and variable service requirements, when you change the channel that detects the DTMF touch tones on your phones.
Response Point Assistant improves the overall experience for everyday users and callers. In this service pack, you can control how you receive 2-way intercom calls and 1-way pages, and play a call-forwarding announcement (or not) for people when they contact you.
Additional SP2 features include automatic parked-call return, which ensures that no callers are left waiting in park longer than 3 minutes; support for VoIP gateway devices that can help improve service quality; and customizable URLs in call notification windows.

Privacy Guidelines for Developing Software Products and Services

Brief Description

This document is a set of privacy guidelines for developing software products and services that are based on our internal guidelines and our experience incorporating privacy into the development process.

Overview

Failing to protect customer privacy can lead to an erosion of trust. Over the last several years, Microsoft has established extensive internal guidelines for developers that help them protect customer privacy, give them a view into customer expectations and global privacy laws, and document the hard lessons we’ve learned. These guidelines have been engrained in our development process and are now incorporated into the Security Development Lifecycle (SDL). The impact has been felt across Microsoft’s products and services.
In response to requests from customers, partners, ISVs, educators, advocates, and regulators, we created a public set of privacy guidelines for developing software products and services. These guidelines are based on our internal guidelines and our experience incorporating privacy into the development process. By documenting our principles, we hope to help anyone building products and services to meet customer expectations and deliver a more trustworthy experience.
As the threat landscape escalates, customers are feeling less able to control access to their personal information, so consumer trust is waning. As an industry, we need to set a high bar for respecting customer privacy, to help build greater trust in the Internet and e-commerce. We want to foster an open dialogue with others in the industry so we can build a common set of privacy best practices to help meet our privacy obligations and increase customer trust. We are pleased to offer our guidelines as a starting point to accelerate this effort.
We invite you to download the document and send us your comments and feedback.
Included in This Document:

  • Basic Concepts and Definitions
  • Guidelines:
    • Scenario 1: Transferring PII to and from the Customer’s System
    • Scenario 2: Storing PII on the Customer’s System
    • Scenario 3: Transferring Anonymous Data from the Customer’s System
    • Scenario 4: Installing Software on a Customer’s System
    • Scenario 5: Deploying a Website
    • Scenario 6: Storing and Processing User Data at the Company
    • Scenario 7: Transferring User Data Outside the Company
    • Scenario 8: Interacting with Children
    • Scenario 9: Server Deployment

To reduce the overhead of remaining compliant in the constantly evolving regulatory landscape, Microsoft is creating a holistic approach to regulatory compliance. This approach uses a framework of common security controls, unique tools for monitoring, and IT tools for tracking and reporting compliance.
