Microsoft: Forefront Endpoint Protection (FEP) 2010 now available!

Microsoft has announced that Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 (FEP) has released to manufacturing!

Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 is the next version of Forefront Client Security, and will enable businesses to simplify and improve endpoint protection while greatly reducing infrastructure costs.

There are a ton of new features to explore in this new release including award-winning anti-malware protection (FEP uses same engine as Microsoft Security Essentials), vulnerability shielding, Windows firewall management, and, of course, integration with System Center Configuration Manager 2007.

Customers using System Center Configuration Manager 2007 can now quickly and efficiently deploy, configure, manage, update, and report on FEP protections, helping to lower infrastructure costs and improve overall security.

Since both products are included in the Enterprise CAL (ECAL), customers who purchase ECAL automatically get access to all the licenses they need to implement the solution. To make deployment easier, FEP will even identify and replace the existing antimalware agents you may have previously installed.

Visit: Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Protection site or Microsoft TechCenter for more product details.
