What I feel is very important when it comes to creating any cyber solution is definitely security. Unfortunately, many software tools and even the most used ones such as Flash have massive security holes and they need to be attended to immediately otherwise hackers and cybercrime as a whole will have no problem harnessing the power of that information and use it wrongfully.

The Microsoft Digital Crimes Unit division is very good at what it does and it has already saved countless companies worldwide from data leaks and situations that might have destroyed their reputation. They are an amazing team of experts and they will definitely be able to offer the results that people want, it all comes down to the way everything will be implemented in the long run.

I really feel that Microsoft Digital Crimes Unit has the ability to harness Microsoft Cloud and its power in order to help us stay safe online and the way they started it is definitely a good start, hopefully their future solutions will offer even better results!
