Calendar year 2013 wasn’t just another year in our history. It was a pivotal year. A year in which we laid the foundation for you, as our respected readers, to feel invited to check back often and enjoy the central role Active Directory plays in today’s networking infrastructures.
We’ve got a pretty solid team of bloggers. But, we’ve also found two more gentlemen willing and able to blog with us:
- Robin Gilijamse
- Sergio Kappel

We’ve made a couple of technical adjustments this last calendar year:
- We’ve implemented DNS Security Extensions on the DirTeam.com domain name.
- We’ve disabled SSL v2.0, due to its inherited weaknesses in and its attack surface that may be used by the SSL BEAST ("Browser Exploit Against SSL/TLS") attack, allowing man in the middle (MITM) attacks.
