Microsoft touts Windows 2000 as 'secure'
Microsoft has claimed that Windows 2000 has received the highest level security evaluation of any commercial operating system.
Windows 2000 has won the Common Criteria certification, a global standard for the security features and capabilities of IT products which is an important benchmark for government and other contracts.
According to Reuters, independent evaluators looked at the development methodology, documentation, architecture and other operational and security aspects of the software in a broad set of real-world scenarios.
A Microsoft spokesman explained that it took three years and "many millions of dollars", and that it is "an important milestone for the company".
