Re: Pending Review
I thought priorities were: People, Process then Products....in order. The best products in the world aren't going to help if you don't have the right people or the security/business processes to utilize them.

Re: Free Tools
True, but it takes some vetting. Some of the free tools can be anxiety-inducing if they're offered by an independent developer or small organization with minimal rep. For a couple of free tools I use, I've had to do quite a bit of research just to make sure they were on the up and up -- when in the long run I might have been better off and more comfortable had they just asked to charge $10 to my credit card. ;)

Re: Pending Review
The security tools are the most important component of any system and those tools secure our data against any kind of scams over the system. There are several security tools available on the Internet and many of them are free. To get them all, consult with Microsoft Support Chat, it will help you to select the best option for your system.
