Our campus is evaluating various desktop firewalls (for Windows 2000/XP). Our main file/print servers are NetWare (6.5) and we run BorderManager on the edge.

Question: We are currently comparing using McAfee Firewall (we own a site McAfee Antivirus license) vs NCF.

The main differences so far are:

1. McAfee Firewall requires the MS Client to be installed before installation (our college doesn't install the client for security reasons), although the client can be remove afterwards.
2. ePolicy Orchestrator - Is a server/console app that allows you to rollout the product, push policies changes, get alerts, etc.

Does NCF in any manner integrate with eDirectory or Zenworks to allow centralized reporting or policy change?
