EMC system gets antivirus support

Storage-system maker EMC has announced that its high-end Celerra file-storage system now supports antivirus software from Computer Associates, McAfee, Symantec and Trend Micro. Using software from these companies lets a computer system check for viruses as files are written to the Celerra system, EMC said Tuesday. The move stemmed from a partnership plan that started in August 1999 and made it easier for software companies to tie in with EMC hardware. Antivirus companies have been advocating for the use of their software on centralized servers so viruses that arrive via e-mail can be nipped in the bud more easily.
