Yesterday we launched a new line of e-mail security products based on the Sybari products we acquired a while back.

Available via volume licensing on July 1st and as a 90 day free trial from the Microsoft website, you will be able to buy a ‘three pack’ dubbed ‘Antigen Messaging Security Suite’ which will include Exchange Antivirus, SMTP (or Edge) Antivirus and Anti Spam components. We are also releasing Antigen Enterprise Manager to allow you to control all of this technology as well as making a MOM management pack available.

The other point worth noting is that as well as using ‘usual’ antivirus engines, we are also adding GeCAD which is a virus scanning engine we acquired a while back.

The pricing is said to be ‘very competitive’ and will be sold per-user-per-year subscription basis … as you would expect.

When I have some more information I will post and update here !

[UPDATE] - Some more information on the naming of the products can be found here on Daves blog.
