Canada
has announced the immediate, worldwide availability of a free
Internet Technologies upgrade kit for its Small Business Server (SBS) 4.0
product.


SBS is intended to help small businesses address basic networking and office productivity
needs by simplifying how they connect to the Internet, manage e-mail and
contacts, and fax from any desktop.


The upgrade improves both performance and security by adding Internet Proxy
Server version 2.0 and the Windows NT 4.0 option pack to the SBS suite.

reducing connection times and improving security, which means that small
businesses can feel even more confident about establishing a presence on
the Internet. The Windows NT Option Pack offers further Internet related
functionality.


Microsoft Canada recommends that small businesses consult with their local
Microsoft Certified Solutions Providers about the Internet Technologies
upgrade kit, which has an approximate value of (CAN)$785.


“Small and medium-sized business customers have always appreciated the
value of Microsoft Small Business Server and its clean, clear, and concise
interface,” said Paul Christilaw, product manager, Microsoft Small Business Server, Microsoft Canada.
“This upgrade allows smaller businesses to compete in the e-commerce forum without compromising security.
