Column: Macs offer secure Office solution

updated 09:00 am EDT, Fri April 22, 2005

Mac security

"If security concerns are your most important driver for desktop change, and Microsoft Office compatibility is your most significant barrier, then switching to Macs actually offers you the ," writes columnist Paul Murphy. He says Office on the Mac even features a "better GUI, longer product life, some cash savings and a performance bonus thrown in." Although software vulnerabilities are half the problem, Murphy points out that many "don't see the hardware side of their security problems." In contrast, "attacks on Unix generally require some form of initial legal access to the machine."

    context?

    How about some context so people don't have to necessarily click through the link (with its cryptic URL)? The column is in the online publication "CIO Today" which indicates the kind of audience Mr. Murphy's words might reach.

    link was good for me

    and so was the article. Thank you Paul Murphy, right on the nose and from 10,000 or 15,000 feet, perfect for the CIO. No ranting needed this is the type of press that will have resounding effect. More to come let's hope there are no gotcha's in Tiger and the AD client environment is robust. Now someone needs to intorduce him to the XServe and what its all about, till then, Bravo
