'Twitterview' With Microsoft

I sometimes get a little long-winded when I pose a question to a source during an interview. But I undoubtedly will be pithy tomorrow when I conduct Dark Reading's first-ever "twitterview," or interview via Twitter, where I'll be strictly limited to 140 characters or less for a question.

But I undoubtedly will be pithy tomorrow when I conduct Dark Reading's first-ever "twitterview," or interview via Twitter, where I'll be strictly limited to 140 characters or less for a question.I'll be twitterviewing Microsoft's JG Chirapurath, the senior director of Microsoft's identity and security business group, which rolled out a new member of the Forefront family of products today as well as a new Active Directory product. Among other security topics, JG and I will discuss why Microsoft is running different vendors' AV engines in one of its new products.

If you have anything you'd like to ask Microsoft's JG, feel free to tweet your questions to me beforehand via Dark Reading's Twitter account, here, and I'll try to fit them in.
