Computer Associates announced on Monday new software aimed at filtering out spam and viruses, along with preventing hacking and unacceptable employee usage of the Web. Called eTrust Secure Content Management, the software ties desktop antivirus and gateway-server filtering software into a single platform.
The software, to be released this fall, will add features to the antivirus software already deployed by Computer Associates customers. It will integrate enterprisewide security management policies that address Web-, mail- and file-based threats. CA's eTrust will also give companies the ability to detect and block activity such as music-sharing and pornography-viewing.
