Replace TrendMicro with ForeFront Security Suite RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am tasks with replacing Trend with the ForeFront Security suite. 

    We run the following trend products:

    VirusWall for SMTP scanning
    Trend for Sharepoint
    Scanmail for Exchange
    OfficeScan for Desktops/Laptops/Servers
    Trend for Netapp devices.

    We have MS MOM 2005 and SMS 2003 in place as well as 15 Exchange 2003 servers (FrontEnds and BackupEnd server included) and 5 Netapps worldwide. I have very aggressive deadline to replace each product.

    What is the min installation of ForeFront that can be installed for ex. can I just install ForeFront client security on 1 server with Distribution and Managerment roles? if so what will that give me the ability to do??

    Does the Exchange, Sharepoint, Smtp scanning modules in ForeFront depend solely on the management and distribution roles or could I install these apps and configured them to update directly from Windows Update?

    thanks for your reply

  • Hi!

    I think you got the Forefront products all mixed up.

    The Forefront products are

    Forefront Server Security:
    - Forefront Server Security for Exchange (2007) or Antigen for Exchange 2003
    - Forefront Server Security for SharePoint

    These products protect Exchange and SharePoint specifically.

    Forefront Client Security
    This product protects the client and server OS. This product relies on MOM 2005 as a core component (MOM 2005 comes bundled with the product and you can not use an existing MOM infrastructure)
