I am more than pleased to inform you that we announced today a partnership between EMC/RSA and us. This partnership involves the integration of EMC/RSA technology into our platform. I quote from our press release:

Microsoft will build the RSA® Data Loss Prevention (DLP) classification technology into the Microsoft platform and future information protection products. The resulting collaboration is designed to enable organizations to centrally define information security policy, automatically identify and classify sensitive data virtually anywhere in the infrastructure, and use a range of controls to protect data at the endpoints, network, and data center. Additionally, in the near term RSA’s DLP Suite 6.5 will be engineered to integrate tightly with Microsoft Active Directory Rights Management Services (RMS) within Windows Server 2008.

Looking forward to the outcome

Roger
