Podcast: More or less, a browser security comparison

Internet Explorer 7 has a number of advanced security capabilities, including the ability to run in protected mode, restrict which protocols downloaded content can use, and protection against phishing and common cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. However, many organizations have abandoned IE in favor of Firefox, widely perceived to be a safer browser. But is that no longer true?

This podcast will offer a browser security comparison, exploring the various security merits of Firefox and IE 7, and show enterprises how to decide which is right for their organizations.
