Microsoft & Nokia team on Security Appliance

Microsoft is teaming with Nokia on a Unified Threat Management security appliance.

Nokia?

Why not?

Motorola, while using Windows Mobile on some of its phones, continues to use Linux on a lot of phone lines.

The UTM device will aso include VPN functionality, a la Citrix Access Gateway.

This is one of the things I like about Microsoft: it's pragmatism. Always leverage the best partner out there.

As a Microsoft partner, my company enjoys a wealth of resources that helps our client engagement reach new heights.

Then they raise the bar again.

Thanks, MSFT!
