Site License Advisory Team
  • May 31, 2011 meeting

  • McAfee VirusScan and Microsoft Forefront
  • Microsoft EES Contract
  • LANDesk/Altiris and asset/inventory management
  • Secunia
  • Identity Finder Negotiations

  • McAfee expires in September 2012.
  • Frustrations are being expressed on the Mac side
    and the Windows side
  • Students Microsoft Security Essentials
  • Currently available for free for all home use
  • Not available for enterprise (OSU) machines
  • Linked from OSU SLS at this time
  • Retirement of student McAfee in process.
  • Fac/Staff Microsoft Forefront
  • Endpoint solution available to all Fac/Staff in
    August, and available to any ECAL dept. now

Decision Factors for McAfee Migration
  • 400,000, 3 year costs, of which over 200,000
    are unfunded
  • IUC Schools have been abandoning McAfee in favor
    of Forefront, and most are unlikely to renew
    their windows McAfee solution in 2012.
  • The Ohio State University will be licensed for
    Microsoft Forefront, an alternative to McAfee,
    beginning August 2011 as part of its CoreCAL
  • Forefront scores very well in terms of
    accessibility to disabled persons.
  • ClamAV (Mac/Unix machines) is an open source and
    available to all faculty, staff, and students. It
    is command-line and non-active-scanning.
  • Microsoft Security Essentials is a free Microsoft
    product that is available for all students and
    faculty/staff for personally-owned machines.
  • McAfee has had three major false-positives in the
    past year. One had a major impact on the
    University, another hit specific departments, and
    the last had very limited effect on the
    University, but showed that this issue remains a
    major problem.

McAfee Migration Benefits
  • Cost savings to the University of 400,00 over 3
  • Leverage Forefront in our current Microsoft
    contract at no additional costs
  • Align OCIO services with current student
    expectations where we see the majority of
    students arriving to campus with an existing
    anti-virus solution installed on their
  • Realignment of resources focused on the support
    of McAfee for the university to other priority
  • Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager
    (SCCM), available at no additional costs, can be
    used to manage Forefront, Bitlocker, and Secunia
    along with McAfee AntiVirus where needed
  • ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) is licensed under
    Safeboot and can remain a viable management
    solution for Safeboot and McAfees products.

McAfee Migration Risks
  • Migration costs could exceed renewal costs
  • Gartner 2010 magic quadrant depicts McAfee as a
    leader and Microsoft in lower left as a niche
  • Lack of sustainable funding for McAfee FY13-FY15
  • Additional costs to departments if the University
    moves away from McAfee and departments remain on
    the tool.
  • MedCenter assuming 12,899 machines at 17.24 per
    license, the 3 year estimate could be as high as

Microsoft EES Agreement
