Microsoft to acquire FrontBridge Technologies
Posted on 21-Jul-2005 11:13 | Tags Filed under: News



Microsoft plans to acquire FrontBridge Technologies
Fully managed services will help ensure e-mail compliance and continuity while providing customers with additional security protection from spam and virus threats.

Microsoft Corp. will acquire FrontBridge Technologies Inc., a company providing managed services that address corporate e-mail security, compliance and availability requirements.

With this acquisition, Microsoft plans to deliver a service for enforcing compliance through archiving, minimizing spam and viruses, and ensuring e-mail availability in the case of a disaster.

According to Microsoft, the planned acquisition of FrontBridge Technologies will play a key role in Microsoft's strategy to help customers be more secure and better protect their messaging infrastructure while complying with mandatory regulations such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and regulations that affect financial services companies such as SEC 17A and NASD 3010 and 3011.

Microsoft plans to continue to work closely with FrontBridge's partners to provide these services to customers. In addition, Microsoft's existing partners, including Hosted Exchange partners, now will be able to offer these services.
