Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 now supports upgrading an existing Forefront Endpoint Protection database and reporting database to Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 1.
To use SQL Server 2012 SP1 with Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010, you must upgrade the existing instance of SQL Server from SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 R2 or SQL Server 2012. It is not supported to install new Forefront Endpoint Protection components on an existing or new instance of SQL Server 2012 or SQL Server 2012 SP1.
The following update is required to use Forefront Endpoint Protection with Microsoft SQL Server 2012 and 2012 SP1:
KB2683558 - Forefront Endpoint Protection data warehouse and reports fail to get new data on SQL Server 2012 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2683558)
Hi all, the following update was released towards the end of last year as a Critical (non-security) Update via Windows Update. The update addresses an issue with the Windows Filtering Platform that would cause the Network Inspection System (NIS) feature of System Center Endpoint Protection (SCEP) and Forefront Endpoint Protection (FEP) to drastically slow down network performance when actively protecting machines. The KB article can be found here:
KB2735855 - Network connection is slow when you run a WFP-based application on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2735855)
If you have SCEP or FEP deployed, or any firewall/AV software that leverages the Windows Filtering Platform, it is strongly recommended that you deploy this update if you use NIS.
