San Francisco: Microsoft said today it has opened a new cybercrime centre, using its resources to combat malware, intellectual property theft, child exploitation and other ills in cyberspace.
"The Microsoft Cybercrime Centre is where our experts come together with customers and partners to focus on one thing: keeping people safe online," said David Finn of the Microsoft Digital Crimes Unit.
"By combining sophisticated tools and technology with the right skills and new perspectives, we can make the Internet safer for everyone."
The centre on Microsoft`s campus in Redmond, Washington, uses technology to visualise and identify online organised crime networks, child pornography, online fraud and other crimes.
It also has a secure location for third-party partners, including from academia and law enforcement.
