NIKSUN Joins Microsoft Active Protections Program

With MAPP, NIKSUN will receive information about Microsoft's monthly security bulletins in advance

MONMOUTH JUNCTION, N.J., July 20 /PRNewswire/ -- NIKSUN Inc. is pleased to announce their recent partnership with Microsoft via the Microsoft Active Protections Program (MAPP), with the sole aim of offering maximum protection and awareness to mutual customers about emerging security threats.

With MAPP, NIKSUN will receive information about Microsoft's monthly security bulletins in advance and will be provided with vulnerability information before the monthly Microsoft security updates. This enables NIKSUN to anticipate emerging threats effectively and provide customers with timely security advisories as early as possible for maximum, in-depth network defense.

"Security is an industry challenge. With MAPP, NIKSUN and Microsoft exhibit each company's long-standing commitment to industry partnership and the security of customer networks and business assets. Our customers will now have knowledge and protection profiles of previously unknown vulnerabilities well in advance.

Furthermore, NIKSUN can now react to security threats as quickly as possible to provide customers with tougher, more responsive security solutions, making the NIKSUN product even more valuable and applicable in real-world situations," said Dr. Parag Pruthi, CEO & Founder of NIKSUN Inc.

"Our partners share our passion for industry collaboration to protect a world full of Internet users," said Mark Miller, director of Microsoft's Trustworthy Computing product management. "No one company can accomplish this by itself.That is why we are partnering with NIKSUN to advance and improve security."
