Microsoft used its TechEd IT Forum conference here to announce the general availability of its new Forefront Server Security Management Console, a centralized, Web-based management solution for onsite or remote administration of its messaging and collaboration security solutions.

"Customers can use the console to centrally manage and configure servers remotely, automatically download and distribute signature and engine updates, generate comprehensive reports and receive outbreak alerts from across their environment," Steve Brown, Microsoft's director of security and access product management, said at a press briefing Nov. 13.

The console, a Web-based tool, helps businesses centrally manage, configure, report on and update multiple deployments of Forefront Security for Exchange Server and Forefront Security for SharePoint, as well as Microsoft Antigen products, Brown said. It also supports Exchange 2007 Cluster Continuous Replication and integrates with Windows Server 2003 and SQL 2005.
