MS eschews reports it will charge for added security

Clearing up comments made by a Microsoft Corp. executive at a security
conference in Paris earlier this week, a company spokesman said Wednesday
the software maker was not considering charging for additional security
options within its products. "You will not see price upgrades for
additional security in our software," Microsoft Spokesman Rick Miller said.
The clarification came after Microsoft Chief Technical Officer (CTO) Craig
Mundie commented at the RSA Conference on tech security that the company
may offer new security capabilities on a paid basis.
Mundie was referring to the possibility that the Redmond, Washington,
software maker may offer security products "separate and distinct" from
Microsoft's core products down the road, Miller said.
The spokesman added that Microsoft has invested some US$100 million in its
new trustworthy computing push to provide customers with added security
within their products.
