SINGAPORE – December 4, 2006 – Symantec Corp. (Nasdaq: SYMC), a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, today announced that it will offer market-leading, end-to-end messaging management support for customers migrating to Exchange Server 2007.
“Our customers need to secure, manage, and archive all aspects of their messaging environment, while also ensuring compliance with IT policies and government regulations,” said Francis deSouza, vice president of Enterprise Messaging Management, Symantec. “Because many of our customers depend on Microsoft for their mission-critical communications infrastructure, Symantec remains committed to working closely with Microsoft to provide our customers with full support for new technology releases.”
“Microsoft and Symantec have been long-time industry partners, committed to delivering the best experience for our customers,” said Kim Akers, general manager, Unified Communications, Microsoft Corp. “E-mail is a mission-critical application for businesses today, and Symantec’s Enterprise Messaging Management solutions will help provide Exchange Server 2007 customers with greater efficiency, shorter migration time and protection against the loss of confidential data.”
Symantec Enterprise Messaging Management solutions improve the security and manageability of Exchange Server 2007 in three distinct ways:
Symantec Mail Security 8300 Series offers integrated anti-spam, antivirus, and extensive content filtering technologies to help organizations protect against data leakage while ensuring compliance with external regulations and internal corporate policies related to e-mail content. A new Premium Content Control add-on subscription extends basic content filtering capabilities to help organizations mitigate risks associated with data leakage and comply with industry regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX).
Symantec Enterprise Vault, the market-leading archiving solution, helps reduce storage costs and simplify messaging management by enabling organizations to effectively store, manage and discover information held in collaboration systems. Managing more than 7.8 million mailboxes for more than 4,000 customers worldwide, Symantec Enterprise Vault’s powerful built-in search and discovery capabilities are complemented by specialized client applications for greater corporate governance, risk management and legal protection.
Symantec Enterprise Vault also specifically extends some of the new capabilities around storage management and compliance that are built into Exchange Server 2007. For example, during migration customers can integrate their “legacy” PST data distributed on laptops, desktops and servers, and Symantec Enterprise Vault’s best-in-class PST location, migration and “eradication” functionality can help simplify this effort
