                               Advancing the Technology of Protection
                               Antigen for Microsoft Exchange. Microsoft Exchange gives your workgroups the power of
                               collaboration. As Exchange users share ideas, they also share the capacity to receive and distribute
                               harmful viruses through e-mail attachments—corrupting your team’s valuable data and compromising
                               your network. Exchange users have a solution: Antigen from Sybari. Antigen is the antivirus solution
                               specifically designed to meet the security needs of Exchange users. Antigen detects and removes
                               viruses—before they reach mission-critical applications, without compromising the integrity of your
                               groupware servers.
