Hi all,

Big news !!!  Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 for System Center Configuration M R2; R3 is available in RTM Version!!!

What Is Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010?

Desktop management and security have traditionally existed as two separate disciplines, yet both play a central role in keeping users safe and productive. Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 enables businesses to align client security and management to improve endpoint protection while greatly reducing operational costs. It provides protection from evolving malware threats and builds on Configuration Manager 2007 R2 and R3. This enables customers to use their existing client management infrastructure to deploy and manage endpoint protection.

What’s New in Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010?

Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 is built on Configuration Manager 2007 R2 or R3, which enables you to use your existing client-management infrastructure. You can deploy and manage endpoint protection through a single interface of Configuration Manager, which enables you to manage and secure endpoints without the need for additional servers to support FEP. This integration is based on:

  1. Centralized deployment: Central package installation on client machines.
  2. Policy Management: Endpoint security policies can be defined centrally through the management console. Predefined templates for productivity and security defaults make it simpler to define policies based on best practices. It helps reduce complexity and improve troubleshooting and reporting insights, and can save time and effort.
  3. Customized alerts: Forefront Endpoint Protection generates alerts when it detects malware—alerts are based on the severity of the malware. Alerts can also be customized for specific types of malware detection.
  4. Reporting: View the overall status of security threats, actions needed, and the overall health status of client machines.

Configuration Manager distribution is used to centrally manage and monitor the deployment of FEP to client computers in your existing infrastructure. With this method, you can control which Configuration Manager collections the client is deployed to, and use the provided reports to determine deployment status or drill-down to information about computers on which the client failed to deploy and why
Organizations can use their existing WSUS infrastructure to receive the signature and antimalware engine updates. Additionally, administrators can define network file shares or Internet-based Microsoft Update to provide the latest signature updates to the clients.

In the related section of this common usage scenario, you will evaluate the process of centralized client deployment through Configuration Manager 2007. This scenario provides step-by step instructions to distribute and advertise the software to existing or new endpoints.
