Intel Announces End-of-Life for McAfee Email Defense Service
Many of our clients are using the McAfee Email Defense service to scan inbound/outbound email for spam and viruses. Intel has announced a total end-of-life for this service in January, 2017. As a courtesy to their customers, Intel is providing exclusive migration to a similar service offered by Proofpoint. The benefit of this is that all of your configuration information (rules, whitelists, blacklists, and user accounts) will be automatically transferred to Proofpoint by Intel at no charge. There are many other options available to you, such as Securence and Fortimail, however the migration is manual and will incur several hours of setup time to manually migrate your configuration information.
Par3.IT will begin migrations in November and recommend the Proofpoint solution. Watch for more information about this migration coming up in a few weeks.
