Redmondmg reviewed Windows Live Safety Center and concluded that “until Microsoft Client Protection becomes available to a broader audience with a beta, we won’t know whether it will be able to compete with client protection products from other vendors. That said, if Microsoft delivers a product with comprehensive protection features and easy management, any organization with an extensive Windows infrastructure will want to test and evaluate it.
Microsoft Client Protection could turn out to be a blockbuster if Microsoft is successful at building a reputation for the protection program during its first year of existence. On the other hand, if the product comes up short — whether it’s missing key features or faltering in its protection capabilities – Microsoft won’t gain significant market share. No matter how this develops, though, you won’t be able to ignore Microsoft Client Protection. I highly recommend following the development of this product and planning for early testing as soon as a beta is out.”
Note: Winodws Live Safety Center was replaced by Windows Live OneCare Safety Scanner, and then by Microsoft Safety Scanner.
