Microsoft Azure Backup now available for Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 | Cloud Central | Scoop.it

Microsoft Azure Backup is now available for Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1. Azure Backup is a fast and reliable way to backup your data to the cloud. Curiously, Azure Backup offers an 99.99% service availability, maybe as a way to acknowledge that there may be some shortcomings as Microsoft begins to release Azure Backup in the beginning stages of implementation.

Peter Azzopardi's insight:

Windows 8.1 stops pass-the-hash attacks

Windows 8.1 stops pass-the-hash attacks | Cloud Central | Scoop.it
Microsoft has armor-plated Windows 8.1 against the most feared attack on the planet. Here are the nitty-gritty details you need to know
Peter Azzopardi's insight:

"The only caveat I can think of is that all of these new mitigations are currently available only in Windows 8.1 and in Windows Server 2012 R2. I have little doubt customers will want these mitigations back-ported to previous versions, but I have no idea what Microsoft's plans are -- or even if it is reasonably possible to accomplish without causing too many operational problems."
