The program is a response to the rash of viruses, worms and other security incidents that have hit the Internet in the last six months or so, Microsoft officials said. However, much of the Strategic Technology Protection Program, as it is known, has been available previously in one form or another.
The fist phase is called Get Secure and includes a new security tool kit made up of service packs and hot fixes for the Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 environments. The tool kit also includes the new Internet Information Services lockdown tool designed to secure Microsofts IIS Web software.
