Microsoft acquires FrontBridge

Back in March, I wrote about some new e-mail message continuity services from FrontBridge. Well, according to a press release just received from Microsoft, FrontBridge is about to become Microsoft’s latest acquisition as it steps up its systems management and security capabilities. With the purchase of Giant Company (anti-spyware), Sybari (anti-virus) and now FrontBridge (anti-spam and message continuity), Microsoft’s security arsenal is starting to look good. It will be interesting to see how these purchases shape up and whether they are integrated into Windows, retained on an application service provider (ASP) basis, or developed into one or more new products, perhaps as part of the System Center family, or (in the case of FrontBridge) maybe we will see some of the new technology integrated into Exchange 12?
