Mcafee end of life or how to retire software

McAfee End of Life(or: how to retire software!)

  • OCIO and OSUWMC have agreed to retire McAfee before September 2013

  • How the heck do we do that with a 15 year-old agreement?

Ending the life of software

Ending the Life of Software

  • First, read the fine print about how to end the agreement.

    • “A License for a Product shall automatically terminate upon the expiration of the applicable Subscription License term.”

  • Determine OSU responsibilities Re: the agreement

    • “Upon termination or expiration of any License hereunder, Customer will cease use of the Product and exhaust all efforts to destroy all copies of the Product [and any copies created for disaster recovery or distribution] and all related documentation and notify all users that they must return or destroy their copies.”

Ending the life of software1

Ending the Life of Software

  • Understand what survives contract termination

    • In this case, “Terms of Payment,” “Liability/Warranty,” “Nondisclosure,” and “Audit”

      • Obviously, this last one is important; just because we’re no longer in an agreement does not mean that we cannot be audited.

      • When terminating or reducing spend an agreement, you must be prepared for an audit from the company.

Software life cycle management guide

Software Life Cycle Management Guide

  • OCIO maintains a Guide to help you through this: The document includes a section on “Sanitation and Retirement:”

    Sanitation and Retirement

  • Removal of software must occur after a relationship between user and University or area ends.

    • Relationships may end when:

      • A customer disaffiliates with the University (employment termination, graduation, or other termination)

      • A license agreement with a vendor is terminated.

    • When a relationship ends, sanitation of software should begin immediately.

Software life cycle management guide con t

Software Life Cycle Management Guide (con’t)

  • Destruction of master media and publications

    • Media and publications should be destroyed in a manner that allows for tracking of destruction.

  • Maintenance of records

    • Licensing agreements often indicate explicitly how long records must be kept after termination of the agreement.

      • University retention policies and software agreements should be used together to determine schedules.

    • Place all records on a retention schedule upon termination of an agreement, in line with licensing agreement requirements or University retention policies.

So what if i have mcafee

So what if I have McAfee?

  • Please, tell me. (Mailing your info to [email protected] will create a record we can track)

    • OCIO is working on a complete retirement plan at this time

    • OCIO Site Licensing is available if you need help transitioning to another product

  • Current recommended alternatives include Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection (formerly Forefront) on all platforms.
