We are currently using OfficeScan 8 from Trend Micro which is working great. I really like the Web Threat protection which is why I haven't looked in to going to something else for AV protection. In addition, I was hoping Forefront "Sterling" would be out by now. I now see Microsoft changed directions and came up with Forefront Endpoint Protection using SCCM. We do use SCCM though.
In June our licensing will be due and we already own Forefront due to our licensing with Microsoft so am trying to decide to extend the Trend licensing or take the leap to Forefront and save on the licensing costs for Trend.
I see 2 reasons for staying with Trend for now.
1. We move to Forefront Client Security, then again later this year we would move to Forefront Endpoint Protection. 2 big changes does not sound like fun and am not sure it would be worth it.
2. The Web Threat filter on Trend works great. We do however have a Barracuda Internet filter though so I am not sure it makes that big of a difference.
Does anyone with expereince on both have any thoughts about migrating now or just wait till next year? FYI, we use OfficeScan on both workstations as well as servers.
