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.

"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.
