Hack in the Box 2006 Microsoft Vista show off

by Ivana Strahija on July 12th, 2006 Microsoft has decided to point out the main security features of Windows Vista at this year's Hack in the Box network security conference.

In order to gain as big feedback as possible for it's newest operating system, the Redmond lot has decided to show off their Windows Vista. Microsoft hopes this presentation is going to help eradicating possible vulnerabilities from the Vista system before it hits the market.

Dave Tamasi and Douglas MacIver of Microsoft will talk about Vista security engineering, features and improvements, as well as BitLocker Drive Encryption, which is designed to protect data if the computer gets stolen.

-Companies know that fixing vulnerabilities in already released products is always going to be much more expensive than finding and squashing them during the development stage. At the end of the day it also doesn't help an organization's image when critical bugs are found which could have been trivially fixed from the start, said Dhillon Andrew Kannabhiran, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Hack In The Box (M) Sdn. Bhd.
