Microsoft Sets Unified Security Strategy with ‘Stirling’

Microsoft officials have outlined plans for a unified security product they say will allow users to centrally manage security across an entire IT infrastructure from a single console.  Code-named Stirling, the product is designed to enable IT managers to centrally set policy, configure, deploy and manage security within their IT environments.  When it is officially released—-Microsoft officials have mentioned 2009 as a general release date, with the beta version to be available later in 2007—-it will include the next-generation versions of the Forefront Client Security, Server Security, and Edge Security and Access solutions, plus a unified management console.
