FrontBridge makes sure that enterprise e-mail is secure against viruses and spam, complies with regulatory requirements such as Sarbanes-Oxley, and is available during disasters.
The FrontBridge technology will be made available to users via Microsoft’s Exchange e-mail server services.
Dave Thompson, Microsoft corporate vice-president of the Exchange server group, said, “We see FrontBridge’s services as a perfect complement to Exchange. The FrontBridge team brings significant expertise in helping customers mitigate messaging risks before they ever reach the corporate firewall.”
FrontBridge’s services are delivered globally by a load-balanced datacentre network.
Microsoft is buying FrontBridge for an undisclosed sum. Last year, it bought anti-virus software company Sybari and anti-spyware solutions provider Giant Company Software.
