Dell and Symantec are teaming up to deliver protection for Microsoft Exchange-based e-mail systems, the companies plan to announce Wednesday.

The Round Rock, Texas, PC and server maker and the Cupertino, Calif., software vendor are combining their products in an offering dubbed Secure Exchange. The product is designed to take time and complexity out of running a secure, reliable Microsoft Exchange e-mail system with archiving capabilities, the companies said.

“Everybody uses e-mail,” said Judy Chavis, director of business development and global alliances at Dell. “We’re making it easier for you to secure your e-mail system.”

The announcement comes just a week after Symantec announced a partnership with Juniper Networks to load more of its security technology onto Juniper’s networking devices. Earlier this year, Symantec said it would curtail its own security appliance business.
