Microsoft Plans Enterprise Antivirus Effort

OneCare is obviously just the beginning. The problem with most of Microsofts security efforts to date is that they are consumer targeted, but at this years RSA conference they made no bones about the fact that they were eyeing the enterprise.

Microsoft plans to deliver antivirus technology to its enterprise customers in the future, a key Microsoft security executive confirmed Tuesday.

During the company's monthly security briefing, a key security executive confirmed that Microsoft intends to make available for its large corporate accounts antivirus like the one that will be part and parcel of the Windows OneCare service for small businesses and home users that was unveiled May 13.

"We'll have an enterprise version," but Microsoft needs to offer centralized management capabilities before launching such a service for corporate customers, said Mike Nash, corporate vice president of Microsoft Security Business & Technology Unit. He declined to provide additional details about an enterprise version or when it would launch.
