Quoted in Processor Magazine

I was pleasantly surprised to see that I was quoted a few weeks ago in Processor magazine. The article by Tony Bradley was about Vista security.

Joel Dubin, Microsoft MVP and author of “The Little Black Book of Computer Security,” notes, “Some of the features, such as User Account Control, are aimed at home users, and its pop-up windows could be difficult for a small business user, but it’s a little early to tell since it hasn’t been widely adopted yet. The other security features, such as Windows Defender, operate in the background and wouldn’t be intrusive. But for a small or medium-size business the best approach is to see how well it integrates into their current environment. If they’re using Active Directory, for example, the Vista systems would connect to that environment, where many of the same security features can be controlled through GPOs.”

Tony is the author of numerous articles and books, including Essential Computer Security, and runs the web site on network security.

Processor is a weekly tabloid-size newspaper, specializing in articles about products and issues of interest to SMBs.

They had two other interesting articles in their March 30 issue, Tips for Better Security and Compliance and Safeguarding Against Logic Bombs.
