Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has been recognized by STEMconnector as one of the top 100 “STEM CEOs”.
STEMconnector helps its members design, implement and measure STEM strategies. The list of top 100 “STEM CEOs” was presented today as part of the 2013 U.S. News STEM Solutions summit.
“Washington state ranks number one in the nation in the concentration of STEM jobs due to inspiring business leaders like Steve Ballmer,” said Patrick D’Amelio, CEO of Washington STEM, in a press release today.
IT pros and developers now have another weapon in their arsenal to combat software vulnerabilities: a new version of our Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET 4.0).
“The tool works by protecting applications via the latest security mitigation technologies built into Windows, even in cases where the developer of the application didn’t opt to do this themselves. By doing so, it enables a wide variety of software to be made significantly more resistant to exploitation – even against zero day vulnerabilities and vulnerabilities for which an update has not yet been applied,” writes Director of Trustworthy Computing Tim Rains over on the Microsoft Security Blog.
Here are more details on what’s new in this version of EMET:
· Certificate Trust: SSL Certificate Pinning has been added to help detect Man in the Middle attacks that leverage the Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).
· Early Warning: We added a feature called Early Warning that sends useful information to Microsoft every time an attack has been detected by EMET.
Organizations of all sizes in the public sector are sometimes strapped for IT resources, and now, they can use solutions and add-ons based on the Microsoft Dynamics CRM platform to better manage tasks such as citizen services, FOIA requests, economic development, mapping, fleet management, etc.
With the CRM App Store for Dynamics, customers can buy apps (or install free ones) that are available in the cloud or on premises. Apps that help manage public records, maps and PDFs are available for them through an easy “Click, Try, and Buy” experience. Trial versions allow them to see if a solution works for them. The online store also provides pricing options, brochures, videos, descriptions, and features of each solution.
