Microsoft releases Antigen enterprise e-mail security products

Posted by David Hunter at 2:23 PM ET.

Obtained in the acquisition of Sybari, Microsoft’s Antigen family of enterprise security products had been anticipated since last October and are now ready to ship. Press release:

Microsoft Corp. today announced the release of Microsoft® Antigen e-mail security products — including Antigen for Exchange, Antigen for SMTP Gateways, Antigen Spam Manager and Antigen Enterprise Manager — available to customers July 1, 2006. This milestone marks the first Microsoft-branded release of the enterprise anti-virus and anti-spam products acquired in the 2005 acquisition of Sybari Software Inc.

Microsoft Antigen e-mail security products use multiple scan engines to help provide comprehensive protection from viruses, spam and other security threats. In addition to scan engines from industry-leading security companies AhnLab Inc., Authentium Inc., CA Inc., Kaspersky Lab, Inc., Norman Data Defense Systems Inc., Sophos Plc and VirusBuster Ltd., all Microsoft Antigen e-mail security products now include the new Microsoft anti-virus engine.

Also announced were Antigen Messaging Security Suite (includes Antigen for Exchange, Antigen for SMTP Gateways and Antigen Spam Manager) and Antigen Management Pack for Microsoft Operations Manager 2005. Promised for the future were “Antigen for SharePoint and Antigen for Instant Messaging, which will remain Sybari-branded products until the next versions, which are targeted for release in the first half of 2007.”

  2. New betas of Exchange 2007 and Forefront Security for Exchange from Microsoft -- Microsoft News Tracker Says:

    [...] Exchange Server 2007 beta 2 is available for download here, and Forefront Security for Exchange Server beta can be downloaded here. … General availability for Exchange Server 2007 and Forefront Security for Exchange Server is scheduled for late 2006 or early 2007. Both products will be available through Microsoft’s Volume Licensing program and worldwide partner channel. Forefront Security for Exchange Server will be available as a stand-alone product or as part of the Exchange Enterprise Client Access License package. The Microsoft home pages for Exchange Server 2007 and Forefront have more information on the products themselves, but recall that Exchange 2007 will be x64 (i.e. 64-bit) only although like with beta 1, there’s a 32-bit version of beta 2 for “feature evaluation”. Per the beta system requirements, the beta of Forefront Security for Exchange is only 64-bit. Also recall that Forefront is the new branding for Microsoft enterprise security products which in this case is being applied to what was an Antigen product acquired from Sybari.
