Symantec launches content management suite

Symantec released a broad suite of content management software plus a new version of its Enterprise Vault archiving product.

Symantec released on Monday a broad suite of software aimed at managing content ranging from e-mail to instant messages plus a new version of its Enterprise Vault archiving product.

The software suite, called Information Foundation 2007, wraps together several of Symantec's existing products that help administrators set policies and security concerning information flowing across their networks.

Internet Foundation includes licenses to use Symantec's Enterprise Vault, Mail Security 8300 Series Appliance Software, IM Manager, and Web Security for Microsoft's Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2004 software, among others.

The software can scan e-mail content, archive instant messages and set retention policies of documents for compliance purposes, among many other features, the company said. It also include antivirus and antispam software.

Symantec said the product improves server performance through more efficient archiving, which reduces the amount of information on the server. Pricing starts at US$95 per user per year with volume discounts available.

The company also released Enterprise Vault 7.0, a new version of its e-mail, file, IM and content archiving product. It adds support for Microsoft's Exchange Server 2007, said Fredrik Sjosted, senior manager for product marketing in Europe.

Enterprise Vault can also hunt through e-mail for specific keywords and categorize those messages according to a pre-set policy, which helps for compliance reasons, Sjosted said.

The new desktop search feature in Microsoft's Vista OS, due for release on Monday, can also be used to search Enterprise Vault's e-mail archives, Sjosted said. Pricing was not immediately available.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
