Network Associates Delivers McAfee PortalShield for SharePoint Portal Server

Network Associates, Inc. announced the availability of McAfee PortalShield 1.0 for Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server. McAfee PortalShield offers virus protection for Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server 2001, 2003 and Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. McAfee PortalShield is integrated with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) for policy management and enforcement, enterprise-wide visibility, rapid software deployment and distribution of the latest virus definitions. Each time a document is written to or read from the document libraries, the McAfee PortalShield software scans the content and compares it with a list of known viruses and suspected virus-like behavior. McAfee PortalShield also scans for content within the document or Webpart using the rules and policies defined within the McAfee PortalShield software. Lexical and content management capabilities enable McAfee PortalShield to apply these rules and policies to over 280 document types such as Acrobat Reader and Microsoft Word. Using McAfee PortalShield rules, document download and upload actions can be prevented, and alerts sent to the administrator if the documents contain banned content. McAfee PortalShield is currently available through Network Associates channel partners and its direct sales force. www.networkassociates.com

CambridgeDocs Announces xDoc XML Converter 1.7

CambridgeDocs announced the xDoc Converter 1.7, an update to its xDoc Converter product. The xDoc Converter is a tool for migrating unstructured content from Microsoft Word, HTML, and Adobe PDF documents into any XML schema (XSD) or DTD for improved searching and indexing across the enterprise. The new release includes the Microsoft Excel Driver, which can be used to transform Microsoft Excel 97, 2000, and XP spreadsheets into XML. xDocs modular architecture enables the Microsoft Excel driver to produce ppXML, which can be then be further transformed into HTML, XSL:FO, PDF, or Microsoft RTF. “Visual Rules By Example”, which allows an end user to “highlight” a phrase or some text in a visually rendered version of the original document is also in the new version. The ability to convert XML and XSL:FO into Microsofts Rich Text Format is also in this release. This capability makes it possible, for example, to convert a PDF file into XML and then convert the XML into RTF for editing and opening within Microsoft Word. www.cambridgedocs.com
