Microsoft has released an integrated security solution beta in response to customer feedback, it has emerged.

The product, code-named 'Sterling', integrates security configuration via a central management console and covers client, server and network edge, according to Manufacturing Computer Solutions.

It is hoped the release will enable businesses to tackle security issues more quickly and cost-effectively, reports the news provider.

Chris Christiansen, programme vice-president for security products and services at analyst IDC, pointed out that his firm's research has suggested that IT departments are demanding integration between individual security technologies.

"Products like this will play a key role in reducing administrative and support costs and, ultimately, reducing the total cost of ownership of managing multiple security technologies," he added.

The product release comes following news last week that a massive increase in online malware is expected in the next year. According to IT Pro, 2008 will see an increase of over 20 million malware codes added to the internet, a ten-fold increase on last year.
