CA Announces Internet Security Protection For Windows Vista


CA Anti-Virus 2007 to Support Windows Vista Release

ISLANDIA, N.Y., January 17, 2007 – CA (NYSE: CA) today announced that it will deliver comprehensive virus protection for consumers using the new Windows Vista operating system with CA Anti-Virus 2007. CA expects to make its entire Home and Home Office product line of Internet security software available for Windows Vista users in the coming weeks.

In May 2006, CA was one of the first security vendors to offer security software to Windows Vista beta users with CA Anti-Virus. To date, more than 160,000 Windows Vista beta customers have successfully installed the software and have realized the benefits of CA’s powerful virus protection.

As an additional benefit, all CA Anti-Virus 2007 customers are eligible for up to $1,500 in Virus Protection coverage. This covers technical support, repair services and hardware replacement in the event a user’s laptop or PC fails due to a virus infection following installation of the software.

In the coming weeks, CA expects to make available Windows Vista-compatible versions of CA Internet Security Suite 2007, CA Anti-Spyware 2007, CA Anti-Spam 2007, and CA Personal Firewall 2007, which deliver easy-to-use, award-winning protection against Internet-borne threats that can jeopardize privacy, identity, data, and PC performance.

“We are pleased with the global security partner support we have received on Windows Vista and that our customers will have security solutions from CA for Windows Vista,” said Ben Fathi, corporate vice president of the Security Technology Unit at Microsoft Corp. “Partners play a vital role in helping secure the Windows platform, and CA has developed security technologies that will offer our customers a more secure computing experience on Windows Vista, Microsoft’s most secure operating system to date.”

“CA is committed to making sure everyone can use the Internet safely,” said David Luft, senior vice president of product development at CA. “By working closely with Microsoft, we are delivering solutions that work seamlessly with the Windows Vista operating system so they deliver optimum protection with minimal impact on PC performance.”

CA has a long-standing relationship with Microsoft to help keep consumers safe online. Since 2003, 7.5 million customers have installed CA Anti-Virus, as a key step of Microsoft’s Protect Your PC guidance.
