ISLANDIA, N.Y., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CA, Inc. (Nasdaq: CA) today announced that its Internet Security Business Unit (ISBU) is rolling out a new channel program for its Business-to-Business (B2B) product lineup. CA will now offer CA Host-Based Intrusion Prevention (HIPS) free with the purchase or renewal of CA Threat Manager (a value of $1800 for 50 licenses). Additionally, all CA B2B Internet Security products, including CA Threat Manager, CA HIPS, CA Total Defense, CA Anti-Virus, CA Anti-Spyware, and CA Gateway Security, will now include remote installation free of charge.

"In this economy everyone is being forced to do more with less," said Chris Hickey, vice president of Sales and Marketing for CA's ISBU. "While the economy was in decline, the rate of malware increased exponentially. We created this channel-only program to provide our partners and their customers with the best B2B anti-malware solutions at a great value. By receiving free remote installation and configuration with our products, customers can alleviate the added drain on their already tapped IT resources, and can be assured that the product is installed correctly -- helping avoid any potential downtime."
