This page provides information to LAN Admins and staff on Forefront, a Microsoft line of security software. This page includes general information, as well as information regarding the download process for those who are interested.
Department Admins should not make the install files available to normal users since Microsoft Security Essentials is to be installed on machines not owned by SIU instead of Forefront. If staff or students ask about having Forefront installed on their personal machines Microsoft Security Essentials should be suggested instead. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/products/security-essentials
Under the new Enterprise Campus Agreement Forefront 2010 can be installed on systems running Windows 2003, Windows 2008, and Windows 2008 R2 as a standalone install. Servers can be managed from SCCM with the purchase of a System Center 2012 standard CAL.
System Center Endpoint Protection 2012 will be available for download Sping Semester 2013.
Department Admins may be asked by IT at different times to give your best estimate on how many machines you take care of have McAfee and how many have Forefront.
For more detailed information on Microsoft Forefront, please visit Microsoft's TechNet site [discusses how Forefront automatically uninstalls McAfee Enterprise]. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff823842.aspx
