Microsoft introduces new security products

New software includes the DynaComm i:filter, which the company has acquired from FutureSoft.

Microsoft plans to debut a series of new security products at the 2006 RSA Conference next week, including the DynaComm i:filter, which the company has acquired from FutureSoft.

The other products include Microsoft Client Protection, Microsoft Antigen Select Beta, and the Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2006 Beta. DynaComm helps companies manage their employees' access to the Web, while Client Protection defends laptops, desktops and servers from such threats as spyware and rootkits. Antigen Select Beta is an e-mail security system that helps thwart spam, viruses and worms. These products come on the heels of Microsoft's announcement earlier this month that it plans to ship Windows OneCare Live , the company's first foray into the antivirus market. The McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, Calif., will host the RSA Conference from Feb. 13 to Feb. 17.
