Published May 04 2020 07:47 AM 2,584 Views

Over the past 12-18 months, I have been providing a newsletter to customers that consolidates product updates, new offerings, how-to's, and general announcements for Microsoft Security Products and Services.  Based upon feedback, the newsletter has been a valuable resource to stay up-to-date on a monthly basis and thus have decided to publish it here for more folks to leverage this resource.  Please leave comment below if you find this newsletter valuable so that I can determine if I should publish this again in the future.
