How Microsoft Handles Its Own Security

There was a fascinating article in Computer World this week about how Microsoft handles its own security.

The article described steps Microsoft uses to fight off 100,000 attacks per month. A lot of it was some simple good common sense approaches to security that any organization should take.

Among the items were the following:

  • Two-factor authentication

  • Network access control

  • Encryption and strong passwords

  • E-Mail and IM without a VPN

  • External SharePoint sites
