Little bit of information for the morning!
Microsoft today announced the completion of its acquisition of Sybari Software Inc. which was originally announced Feb. 8 2005. As a wholly owned subsidiary of Microsoft, Sybari will continue to offer enterprise protection products for the Microsoft Windows platform.
Microsoft will offer and support Sybari products in the following ways:
- Microsoft will offer Sybari products for the Microsoft Windows platform, including Antigen for Microsoft Exchange, Antigen for Microsoft SharePoint® Portal Server and Windows SharePoint Services, Antigen for Instant Messaging, Antigen for SMTP Gateways, Sybari Enterprise Manager, Advanced Spam Manager, Advanced Spam Defense and Antigen for Domino on Windows NT®.
- Microsoft will continue to offer high-quality customer support for the complete range of Sybari products offered before the acquisition.
- Microsoft will discontinue new sales of Antigen products for the UNIX and Linux platforms.
The existing Sybari sales channel, licensing models and support delivery will remain intact for the immediate future, and Microsoft’s Sybari operations will continue to have their headquarters in East Northport, New York.
Similarly, because Sybari solutions provide significant value to customers, Microsoft currently plans to continue to offer these solutions under existing licensing models and practices.
