<p>Symantec Announces New Backup and Archiving Support for Microsoft Exchange Server 2010</p>
<p>New capabilities offer rapid search and granular recovery across the Microsoft collaboration environment</p>
<p>Sydney, AUSTRALIA – 10 November 2009 – Symantec Corp. (Nasdaq: SYMC) today announced updates to its backup and archiving software solutions to support Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 and other Microsoft applications. Symantec’s information management solutions help extend Exchange 2010 by further protecting customers’ information, reducing storage and server costs and quickly recovering information for business, legal and regulatory compliance purposes.</p>
<p>Symantec’s Enterprise Vault archiving solution adds direct drag-and-drop access to the archive from Outlook, so users no longer have to rely on “shortcut” links from their mailbox. This is now available for previous versions of Exchange and is scheduled to be available for Exchange 2010 in early 2010. Available now, Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery 2010 provides fast, reliable system backup and restore for Microsoft Exchange 2010. Over the next several months, Symantec is scheduled to deliver updated versions of NetBackup, Backup Exec and Enterprise Vault to reduce storage by deduplicating information stored in Microsoft Exchange 2010, as well as other applications such as Microsoft SharePoint and Windows Server 2008 R2.</p>
<p>“Organisations of all sizes are wrestling with massive information growth across multiple Microsoft platforms and applications, but especially Exchange,” said Mathew Lodge, senior director of product marketing, Symantec Information Management Group. “Symantec helps by providing backup and archiving platforms to centrally protect, manage and discover critical information within Exchange 2010 and other Microsoft platforms.”</p>
<p>New Archiving Support Provides Comprehensive Search and Management of Exchange</p>
<p>Symantec Enterprise Vault unifies deduplication, tiered storage, policy enforcement and e-discovery of information across multiple applications, such as Exchange, SharePoint, file servers and instant messaging. Available now, Enterprise Vault 8.0 with virtual vault eases the end user experience for organisations archiving Microsoft Exchange by combining access to live, legacy and archived emails in Microsoft Outlook without any visible change to the appearance of the message or stub files. This new capability allows end users to easily drag, search, move and retrieve archived email within Outlook just as they would with a .pst but without additional complications related to e-discovery or corruption. Additionally, Enterprise Vault is scheduled to provide fully-integrated archiving support for Exchange 2010 early next year.</p>
<p>“Symantec has unique expertise in backup and archiving solutions, and we are happy to have them as a Microsoft partner for Microsoft Exchange Server 2010,” said Betsy Frost, general manager, UC Marketing at Microsoft Corp. “Partners are critical to Microsoft’s success and, by building on Exchange 2010, Symantec helps us deliver more value to our customers and meet the needs of a wider variety of organisations. We are delighted to have Symantec included in our community of partners who are energised and ready to help customers take advantage of the innovations in Exchange 2010.”</p>
<p>Symantec Backup and Recovery Delivers Granular Recovery of Exchange</p>
<p>Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery 2010 provides small businesses with full system backup and recovery of the latest Microsoft platforms, including Microsoft Exchange 2010, Windows 7 and Microsoft Server 2008 R2. This allows organisations moving to these new Microsoft environments to ensure that their data and systems can be quickly recovered should they encounter an outage or disaster.</p>
<p>Additionally, Backup Exec System Recovery 2010 and the next versions of NetBackup and Backup Exec are scheduled to provide granular recovery of Exchange 2010 email messages, files, mailboxes, and public and private folders from single-pass database backups.</p>
<p>Product Availability</p>
<p>Backup Exec System Recovery 2010 and Enterprise Vault with virtual vault are currently available. The following products are scheduled to be fully Exchange 2010 compatible in the next several months: Backup Exec, NetBackup and Enterprise Vault.</p>

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.
