Information about the new antivirus engine for Forefront and Antigen products

September 29th, 2010 Comments off

Microsoft is upgrading the multi-engine protection in all Forefront server security products to support a newer version of the antivirus engine.  The newer version will provide customers with improved scanning times and reduced signature file size. The new engine replaces the older engine. 

This new engine publishes update files in a subdirectory – the first engine in the Forefront engine mix to do so.  In order to accommodate this new publishing model, Microsoft is releasing a series of roll-ups that will:

        Include the new antivirus engine

        Ensure that any engine that publishes update files in a subdirectory will update correctly

Customers must install the rollups by Jan. 31, 2011.

Changes to the Antigen documentation in the TechNet library

July 23rd, 2010 Comments off

This week we made some significant changes to the Antigen documentation that is available in the TechNet Library. We did this in order to improve your ability to find the information that is most relevant when using a search engine to find answers to your questions. Rest assured that the information isn’t gone forever, it’s merely moved to a new format on a different site.

 

Here’s what happened: We moved the Antigen release notes, getting started, and deployment information out of the TechNet Library and into downloadable Microsoft® Word documents on the Microsoft Download Center. When we archive 50 topics this way, these now resolve as one search hit instead of 50. That takes 49 items you probably didn’t even need out of your way.

 

We’ve left the Antigen user guides and best practices information right where you’re used to finding it in the TechNet Library. Additionally, the Evaluation Guide and Quick Start Guide information is all still available in the Antigen for Exchange, Antigen for SMTP Gateways, and Antigen Enterprise Manager user guides.

 

Once again, here is what moved and where to find it:
