Microsoft unveiled a $25m high-tech facility yesterday to showcase systems for use by government agencies and defence contractors, as well as house the latest in secure computing and telecommunication facilities.

The US Microsoft Innovation & Technology Conference Center in Virginia will, eventually contain "secured facilities for classified meetings with intelligence agencies", as well as a government solutions centre, the company said.

On Wednesday the US government released a draft cyber security plan that recommends measures such as telling users to regularly update their operating systems.

Microsoft joins a host of other high-tech firms in Virginia, such as Nextel Communications and America Online.
