From the Forefront Server Security blog:

Engine and definition updates for the Computer Associates (CA) InoculateIT engine will end on September 29th, 2008.

On January 16th, 2007, the Computer Associates (CA) InoculateIT engine was combined with the Computer Associates VET engine. Since the engines were merged, Microsoft has continued to provide engine updates for the InoculateIT engine as a courtesy to customers using the engine.

If you are still using the InoculateIT engine for antivirus scanning, you should disable it for all scan jobs and discontinue engine and definition updates for the engine. For information about engine updating, please read our documentation on TechNet.

    Is there not a replacement for InoculateIT? I started using it at a previous employer back in 2000. I compared it to McAfee and Norton and it beat them hands down.
