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.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
