I haven't been a Computer Associates fan lately...due to experiences in the past with their corporate antivirus solutions and backup solutions. Yesterday I was down at Microsofts NYC office for a workshop by SMB Nation, that renowned SBS'r Harry Brelsford put on. (Small Business Server) Was a great presentation. Of note...CA had a guy there presenting a new suite they had aimed at SMBs (Small to Medium Businesses)...called CA Protection Suite. It's a single application really, that combines 4x areas...into one tidy centrally managed product. *Antivirus...needs no explanation *Antispyware...probably Pestpatrol technology *Backup/Restore...for workstations/laptops. End users even have the option to restore files if you allow them. *Desktop Migration...to ease replacement/upgrades of end users workstations/laptops. All managed through a single web management console from the server, which the usual features of products like this..remote deployment, etc. http://www3.ca.com/smb/solution.aspx?id=5312&culture=en-us It's something I'll definitely keep my eye on. The concept of touching these 4x areas with one product is great. The effectiveness of their antivirus product is another matter....I've always considered their past AV products a bit clunky to manage on a larger network, and I've seen stuff slip past it. I know their current eTrust is lightweight and average in effectiveness of viruses/worms, but not as strong as other AV solutions when it comes to ad/spyware, like NOD and Kapersky. But in this suite, with PestPatrol technology..might be neat to look at.
