Symantec revamps mail security tool

New version of software for e-mail gateways will mark final result of the melding of Brightmail and Symantec technologies.

Symantec on Monday announced an updated e-mail security product for business users. Symantec Mail Security for SMTP 5.0 is an e-mail gateway software product that offers spam, virus and content filtering. Scheduled to be available in May, the product is the final result of the melding of Brightmail and Symantec technologies into a single, integrated product, the company said in a statement. Symantec bought antispam specialist Brightmail in 2004.

Symantec Mail Security for SMTP 5.0 will be available for a range of operating system platforms, including Microsoft Windows 2000 Server and Windows Server 2003, Sun Solaris 9 and Solaris 10, and Red Hat Linux ES/AS 3.0. It will be sold through Symantec's resellers, distributors and systems integrators.
