    Deploy Internet Explorer 8 for Better Security
    Don’t leave your company at a higher risk by using a competing browser or an older version of Internet Explorer.  Internet Explorer 8 is the best browser at protection from malware (based on NSS Labs Web Browser Security Report 3/12/2009). With the Smart Screen Filter, you can protect against evolving threats like type 1 "reflective" XSS attacks, one of the most common vulnerabilities. And with In Private Filtering your company will have an added level of control and choice about the information 3rd-party websites can potentially use to track browsing activity.
