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.”
