Microsoft Completes Acquisition of Sybari

Microsoft completed the acquisition of Sybari Software on Tuesday and announced product plans, which include discontinuing new sales of the secure messaging company's products for Linux and Unix platforms. The companies first announced the deal, for an undisclosed sum, in February.

Sybari is known for its cross-platform Antigen products, which use multiple scanning engines from major anti-virus and anti-spam vendors to check and clean e-mail messages. Microsoft plans to offer several of Sybari's products for the Windows platform but discontinue new sales of Sybari's products for Unix and Linux platforms. Microsoft did commit to "continue to offer high-quality customer support for the complete range of Sybari products offered before the acquisition," Microsoft said in a statement.
