Joseph Menn writes the Cybersecurity Center will combine data analysis and detective work in an effort to combat software piracy and criminal activities online.

The 16,800-square-foot building is located at the software company’s Redmond, Wash., campus and hosts its digital crimes business unit, according to the report.

David Finn, head of Microsoft’s digital crimes unit, and Microsoft cybercrime attorney Richard Boscovich told Reuters the group is developing strategies to fight sophisticated attacks.

Reuters reports the center features a research lab to analyze malicious software samples and a facility to track Internet service providers and nations with most botnet infections.
