Windows 7 podcast – IE security enhancements

IE8 SmartScreen in action

Michael Argast, Head of Global Sales Engineering, and I sat down to discuss the implications of all the new security functions available in Windows 7. This will be a multi-part series of podcasts providing insight into what has changed, and how it will provide better protection.

In this first part, we discuss Internet Explorer 8 and how it provides a safer browsing experience. Topics covered include the impact of DEP and ASLR on Internet Explorer 8, and a discussion around the new SmartScreen filtering Microsoft has introduced.
