Microsoft hurries antispyware, holds Exchange updates

Thursday, 6 January 2005, 10:11 AM EST

Microsoft is getting ready to release a beta version of antispyware technology it purchased last month to the public, but will delay promised antispam and antivirus improvements to the Exchange e-mail server, according to information provided by the company.

Microsoft is on target to release a public beta of antispyware software by Jan. 16, one month after the company acquired the software by purchasing Giant Company Software Inc. Simultaneously, Microsoft is delaying elements of Exchange Edge Services, a package of e-mail security technologies, until the next major release of Exchange Server.
