Computer Associates International Inc. on Monday unveiled its eTrust Antivirus v7, software that the company says streamlines licensing as well as providing dual virus-scanning engines to increase the percentage of viruses caught before entering the enterprise.

The simplified licensing, which starts at $35 per user, includes antivirus protection for desktop, server, E-mail client, and gateway, as well as mobile devices, says Ian Hameroff, CA's eTrust security strategist.

Peter Firstbrook, a senior research analyst at Meta Group, says CA also has moved aggressively with pricing. "When you get to 10,000 seats, they're about 2.5 times less expensive than most of their competition," he says.

CA's eTrust Antivirus v7 platform support includes 32- and 64-bit Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Linux, Solaris, Pocket PC, and Palm OS operating systems.
