CA is offering users of Microsoft’s Windows Vista Beta 2 operating system a free, one-year trial subscription of its consumer eTrust EZ Antivirus program. Microsoft estimates around two million users will use Beta 2 of Vista.
The one-year CA trial includes business-grade anti-virus protection, daily virus updates and unlimited 24-hour web support, said CA.
David Luft, CA senior vice president of product development, said, “We have been busy readying our security software products to support the Windows Vista platform.”
The final consumer version of Vista will not be available until January next year.
CA is hoping that those using its security software on Vista Beta 2 now will buy it next year when their free subscriptions run out.
