The products were announced by the security firm on Tuesday. The first product, Symantec Brightmail Gateway 8.0, has anti-spam and antivirus capabilities, along with outbound email-content filtering, and is the latest iteration of a product that used to be called Symantec Mail Security.

The third product to be announced, Symantec Enterprise Vault 8.0, lets organisations store, manage and discover information, including unstructured information.

The three products are designed to complement Symantec's 'Information Risk Management Strategy', a suite of services for messaging security, archiving and data-loss prevention.
