The new Identity and Security Division will centralize the development and business groups for all of Microsoft's security and identity products, both consumer and enterprise, and will represent an umbrella for the Forefront portfolio of products, Identity Lifecycle Manager, Rights Management Services, Active Directory and Cardspace.
