Forefront Server Security Management Console lets IT administrators manage security software for Microsoft's messaging and collaboration products.
These include Forefront Security for Exchange Server, Forefront Security for SharePoint and Microsoft Antigen products.
Microsoft expects that the console will appeal to firms running multiple Exchange and SharePoint servers.
Forefront is Microsoft's enterprise-grade suite of security products. The firm released an antivirus product in May, and launched its security product for Exchange Server last year.
Microsoft claims that 20 percent of Exchange server customers currently run Forefront, and boasts 1.2 million Forefront evaluation downloads over the past 12 months.
Microsoft targets the consumer security market with its OneCare suite.
