This week, the Islandia, N.Y., company plans to unveil its Protection Suites r2.0, six suites for desktops, servers, and mixed desktop and server environments, including versions that can be used with Microsoft Corp.s Windows Small Business Server. The suites will make it easy for companies with small or nonexistent IT departments to deploy and use technology to scan for viruses and spyware and set up backups of critical data, said David Luft, senior vice president of product development at CAs SMB Program Office.
The suites offer a common Web interface for managing data backups, users, security policies and reports. A graphical dashboard integrates information from the suites tools, CA officials said.
