Tomahawk, WI 12/10/2013 (BasicsMedia) – Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is taking security of its users very seriously. The company is building security features into hardware and software products. Just last month, MSFT announced its cyber crime center whose mandate is to combat such ills as Internet child abuse, foil terrorism activities and halt illegal infiltration of Internet users’ accounts.

The company is hoping that taking security too far will be able to convert to big revenue, albeit indirectly. In the wake of spying allegations involving the U.S. National security agency, a lot of people have sought to improve security around their Internet accounts. And Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is now playing into this need by offering just the very thing which people are asking for.

The company is set to release a new security feature which enables users to track their accounts for such suspicious actions like illegal login attempts or password-change in their accounts. Also, the new feature is expected to put more power into the hands of users by enabling them to get back their accounts even when they can’t remember details for their two step security verification.

A lot of illegal activities on the Web are now targeted at smartphone users. This is particularly because more and more people are turning to smartphones to access the Internet.

By targeting to protect mobile users as well as other Internet users from inappropriate activities which put their personal information at risk, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is seeking to penetrate the smartphone market. This is an area that it is still lagging behind in the category of operating system. Its Windows 8 Phone requires this push and touting as the best security platform for mobile. In the mobile operating system, Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) leads with its Android OS. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) comes in second with iOS, leaving Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) with the shorter end of the stock.
