Microsoft Forefront Security for Exchange and SharePoint

Forefront Server as an integrated process inside Exchange and SharePoint is a good thing. These are the two locations where there is a vast amount of incoming data and where it would be a disaster should any malware or virus get uploaded.

Verdict

Forefront Server as an integrated process inside Exchange and SharePoint is a good thing. These are the two locations where there is a vast amount of incoming data and where it would be a disaster should any malware or virus get uploaded. Unfortunately, deploying this as a point solution with no real integration and months before the management pack ships suggests either desperation to be seen doing something or a lack of thought.
