Microsoft launches Forefront Security beta

Antony Savvas

Microsoft has launched the public beta of Forefront Security for SharePoint.

Forefront Security for SharePoint uses multiple anti-virus engines from leading security providers to protect against viruses, unwanted files and inappropriate content.

The product is optimised to provide businesses with advanced protection for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0.

This latest release is based on Antigen for SharePoint Server, the multi-engine security programme Microsoft gained as part of the acquisition of Sybari Software in 2005.

Forefront Security for SharePoint simultaneously uses up to five anti-virus engines from leading security vendors to provide customers with increased protection against malware threats and inappropriate content. The latest release includes the new Microsoft Antivirus engine.

The commercial launch of Forefront Security for SharePoint will coincide with the general availability of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, which are scheduled to be available to some businesses by the end of 2006 and generally available in early 2007.
