Windows Server 2008 is due out later this month. In the latest installment of our "What's hot in Windows security" podcast series, security expert Kevin Beaver discusses the new security features of Windows Server 2008, some features that security admins might not be excited about and the possible scale of implementation for the new operating system.
Kevin also shares his thoughts on what the 2008 Windows security landscape might look like. More patches? More malware? Does he think upper management will finally ditch its apathetic attitude toward information security?
