If you've visited our Windows 2000 Magazine Network security channel in the past few days, you know that we've launched a brand new look for the Web site. In addition, we've taken a new name. Formerly known as NTSecurity.net, the new site is now known as Windows IT Security, which better reflects the channel's role in the overall Windows 2000 Magazine Network. The network has grown to include several content-specific channels that provide in-depth coverage of Windows 2000 and Windows NT, SQL Server, Exchange and Outlook, IIS and Web administration, thin-client computing, training and certification, hardware and software, development and scripting, and of course, security.
The main change to the Windows IT Security channel is the site's look and feel; however, we've added a few features that you should definitely become aware of because they'll help you find more information quicker. For example, at the top of the home page is a new search engine that can locate information specifically on the security channel or across the entire Windows 2000 Magazine Network.
At the bottom of the home page, you'll find a list of security-related topics that link directly to our online article library. For example, you can click the Hotfixes link to quickly retrieve a list of all the articles we've published, including all Web exclusive articles and all material published in our printed magazines, that relate to hotfixes.
Another slick feature is our new Windows IT Security Mobile Edition, driven by an AvantGo content channel. Now you can get the latest security information delivered straight to your palm-top computing device. You'll find the AvantGo link near the bottom of the home page.
In addition to our regularly published vulnerability reports, you'll also find a brief listing of Microsoft's latest security bulletins to help keep you up-to-date about new security concerns. As you might already know, we operate a Web-based security forum to let you discuss issues with your peers. You'll find a few of the latest discussion threads listed on the home page for your review.
Last, but certainly not least, you'll find a link to our online Solutions Shopper database where you can search for products designed to fit your needs. In addition to the new items I've mentioned, all the content from the former site design remains available.
In the future, I'll keep you posted about more new content features that will help keep you informed about information security. We hope you enjoy the new security site and the Windows 2000 Magazine Network as a whole. You can access the new security site at the former URL (http://www.NTSecurity.net) or the new URL (http://www.WindowsITSecurity.com). In addition, you can reach the main Windows 2000 Magazine Network Web at http://www.Win2000Mag.net.
Please feel free to send me any comments or suggestions about the new security channel or about other content you feel would benefit the community. Until next time, have a great week.
