The new suite of e-mail and document security and archiving applications aims to give admins consistent performance and control throughout a Microsoft-centric IT system.

Data storage and security vendor Symantec Jan. 29 introduced a new integrated information security and archiving suite of applications that offers consistent enforcement of content control policies across a Microsoft-centric enterprise—from e-mail gateway security to archiving.

Using Symantec Information Foundation 2007, IT professionals can proactively prevent the risk of data loss and policy violations while responding to legal e-discovery requests, a company spokesperson said.

Also on Jan. 29, Symantec made available the beta version of Symantec Information Foundation Mail Security 6.0 for Exchange, a key component in the Symantec Information Foundation suite.

Scheduled to be generally available in March, the Mail Security software aims to reduce risks to information flowing internally as well as in and out of the enterprise via Microsoft Exchange servers, including Microsoft Exchange 2007.

"All systems that are used to exchange and store information within an organization are vulnerable to an increasing range of security, compliance and legal risks," said Francis deSouza, vice president of Symantec's Information Foundation Group.

"Symantec Information Foundation helps organizations protect themselves against theses risks across the wide range of e-mail, instant messaging, Web communications, file sharing and other information systems within the enterprise."
