Microsoft to buy email security provider FrontBridge:

Microsoft Corp., the world’s largest software maker, said on Wednesday (July 20 – ed.) that it would buy FrontBridge Technologies Inc., its second acquisition this year of an e-mail anti-virus protection provider.

FrontBridge provides an outsourcing service that allows companies to have their e-mail and instant messaging scanned before it reaches internal corporate networks. FrontBridge’s subscription service also allows companies to back up their messages and comply with regulations.

In February, Microsoft said it would acquire Sybari Software Inc., which develops software that protects e-mail systems from worms and viruses, as well as spam, or unsolicited e-mail.
