Microsoft opens Cybercrime Center on Redmond campus

Microsoft is opening today its Cybercrime Center, a 16,800-square-foot facility that brings together its experts and technologies focused on online crimes.

The center, located on Microsoft’s Redmond campus, focuses on crimes associated with malware, botnets, intellectual property theft and technology-facilitated child exploitation.

Microsoft would not say how much it is spending on the new center, which houses technologies that, among other things, allow its team to map online organized crime networks and identify global cyber threats in real time.
