DISA installs server-based antivirus aids

The Defense Information Systems Agency has bought server-based antivirus products from Trend Micro Inc. under a five-year, $4.6 million contract.

The company, of Cupertino, Calif., will provide its InterScan Virus Wall for Microsoft Windows NT and 2000, Sun Microsystems Solaris and Linux; ScanMail for Microsoft Exchange Server for NT and 2000; and PC-Cillin for Wireless for personal digital assistants. Control Manager supplies centralized antivirus management.

The award is the third leg of DISA's Enterprise Antivirus Initiative, which replaces a previous five-year contract with across-the-board antivirus protection from desktop PCs to handheld devices to Internet gateways.

Other antivirus contracts went to the McAfee Security division of Network Associates Inc. of Santa Clara, Calif., and Symantec Corp. of Cupertino.
