CA tailors security suite for midmarket users

Computer Associates will offer a suite of security products for users of Microsoft's upcoming midmarket server bundle.

Computer Associates plans to release in October a security-product bundle designed for Microsoft's Windows Server System for Midsize Business promotion. The CA bundle, called the Business Protection Suite for Midsize Business for Windows, will include antivirus, anti-spyware, and data backup and restoration software, as well as desktop migration technologies, the Islandia, N.Y., company said in a statement Wednesday. The bundle will be available in 10 languages and will support 50 users for $6,995, CA said.

The Microsoft promotion was announced in July. That bundle is made up of Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition, Exchange Server 2003 Standard Edition and Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) 2005 Workgroup Edition. Microsoft also announced on Wednesday a new midmarket package based on the new Longhorn version of its server operating system. But that package won't appear until Longhorn Sever does, sometime in 2007.
