What's your opinion on MS ForeFront security?

What's your opinion on MS ForeFront security? We evaluated all the major vendors Symantec, McAfee etc. but we like OneCare better and Microsoft directs us to ForeFront, an OneCare equivalent.

What's your opinion about this product?

Hi Tiger,

Its the emerging security application from Microsoft. Forefront Online is going to be the business-focused equivalent of Microsofts Live OneCare, Microsofts all-in-one antivirus/antispyware/antiphishing/backup and restore service for consumers.


Forefront is a new product by Microsoft which provides great security by integrating with your IT infrastructure and with MS services like Exchange, Sharepoint and your clients in network.

You can test the server and the client version of it.

Well, i know all that, but i just want to see your opinion on this product comparing to all others.
Vishnu KiranPrincipal Support EngineerCommented:
Well my opinion is that its a product which is emerging and has all the features which the existing  security products are providing. Its a product worth trying considering the features which are provided as compared to McAfee and Symantec.  What I have read in the forums and form my colleagues in the security domain is that its a product having the right features required for enterprise security management. Personally I have not got a chance to implement the product so my opinion on product is what I understand and read and heard. got a chance I would certainly try using the product.
Hello PaperTiger,
For some comparison have a look at the following sites to get an idea:

The next version Forefront Stirling is making a big step in the security in depth approach like regular security state assessments an central console for management of all security products like FF for exchange , TMG, OCS and sharepoint. I have the played with FF and the Stiling betas a bit and it like the product.
