Monroe College IT staff members had struggled with the school's security applications. The college's first security software left its desktop and laptop computers vulnerable to Internet viruses and spyware, resulting in multiple outages and downtime. The second product reduced the number of outages, but it was difficult to maintain, and the Monroe IT group struggled to keep security updates current. Monroe College turned to Microsoft Forefront Client Security and has not experienced a disruption due to a virus or malicious software in more than a year because of improved virus and spyware protection. Further, the IT staff appreciates having a simplified system administration process and the ability to easily deploy software updates.
