Forefront Endpoint Protection (FEP) 2010 beta beschikbaar voor SCCM 2007 R2


Forefront Endpoint Protection (FEP) 2010 beta is beschikbaar!

 
Hiermee komt de implementatie van een apart Forefront beheersoplossing te vervallen. Dit is voor een breed scala klanten interessant die reeds Forefront Client Security (FCS) of System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 2007 R2 gebruiken en hierdoor instaat zijn eenvoudig een antivirus oplossing te deployen op basis van een bestaande SCCM infrastructuur.
 
Voor huidige Forefront Client Security gebruikers is dit de ideale mogelijkheid om kennis te maken met de gemakken die SCCM 2007 R2 te bieden heeft. Daarnaast biedt het de mogelijkheid om afscheid te nemen van de gedateerde systeemeisen die Forefront Client Security vereist – Windows Server 2003/2008 x86 en SQL 2005.
 
System Center…één console één (beheer)oplossing

Today the team delivered the anticipated Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 (FEP) public beta to customers. The successor of Forefront Client Security is built on System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 2007 R2, allowing customers to use their existing client management infrastructure to deploy and manage endpoint protection. The end result? Customers will save capital costs on roll-out and also reduce training costs because administrators won’t have to learn yet another management user interface. FEP supports Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 to present. Other new features include:
  • New Antivirus Engine. Highly accurate and efficient threat detection protects against the latest malware and rootkits with low false positive rate.  
  • New behavioral threat detection. Protection against “unknown” or “zero day” threats provided through behavior monitoring, emulation, and dynamic translation.  
  • Windows Firewall management. Ensures Windows Firewall is active and working properly on all endpoints, and allows administrators to more easily manage firewall protections across the enterprise.
  • Dynamic Cloud Updates. On-demand signature updates from the cloud for suspicious files and previously unknown malware

If you are using System Center currently, customers can download the SCCM 2007 R2 trial to understand the features and functionality that it provides to administrators for FEP trial purposes.  

We will announce pricing and licensing at a later date and the final product is on track to be available in the fourth quarter of 2010.
