Latest news from various sources claims that Microsoft is working on a new security product for Windows and plans to release it as a freeware by end of this year. Though it won't be the first time for Microsoft to work on a Windows-based security solution, but we certainly hope that Microsoft does it right this time. Earlier, Microsoft has provided security solutions like Windows Defender and Live OneCare for Windows users but failed to deliver a competing standard.
The new security tool by Microsoft is being dubbed as Morro and is most likely to compete with other anti-virus and security software such as Symantec Norton, Kaspersky and McAfee.
Rumors about Morro have been on the loose since November last year when Microsoft announced that it would discontinue support for Live OneCare and instead plans on providing a much better security solution to the users in the future.
This will not only help the consumers in terms of choice but will also save them from paying off extra money to 3rd part security software as Morro will be totally free.
A beta version of Morro is already under testing internally at Microsoft and will soon be available for download by the users. Perhaps this year, its time for Microsoft to reinvent each of its technologies into something that is better and useful.Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
