Good news for those trying to implement least-privilege on the desktop. Early 2011 will see the release of Microsoft’s cloud management and security solution for SMBs, Windows InTune. As part of the package, customers will have access to Windows 7 Enterprise upgrade rights ($11/PC monthly), and for an additional dollar, the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP), which contains several technologies that can ease the transition to least-privilege. InTune is also shaping up to be a good management and security solution for small businesses. For more details see Microsoft’s InTune website.
