Microsoft on Tuesday took the wraps off its Antigen lineup of security products for e-mail, which include antivirus and anti-spam protection that the Redmond company acquired from Sybari Software in 2005. Four offerings will initially make up the Microsoft Antigen brand.
Antigen for Exchange integrates into Exchange Server 2003 and 2000 to stop viruses and other malicious content from reaching a corporate network, as well as containing internal outbreaks. Antigen for SMTP Gateways provides similar features for Windows Server systems running a mail server.
Antigen Spam Manager offers anti-spam and content filtering services to both Windows Server and Exchange Server setups. Microsoft is offering all three utilities in a single package called Antigen Messaging Security Suite.
