I want to announce and tell you a bit about our plans to provide multi-node management for Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server (FPE) and Forefront Protection 2010 for SharePoint (FPSP). Our new Forefront Protection Server Management Console (FPSMC) 2010 is in the works and aForefront Protection Server Script Kit (FPSSK) will be available for download shortly.
FPSMC 2010 delivers on multi-server node management through an easy to use graphical interface for server discovery, configuration deployment, reporting, quarantine management, update deployment and integration with Forefront Online Protection for Exchange (FOPE). FPSMC is expected to be available as a free download in Q4 2010.
The Forefront Protection Server Script Kit (FPSSK) will also soon be available for download. The FPSSK provides a set of extensible, easy to use command-line scripts that enable server discovery, configuration deployment, reporting and integration with existing management technologies. FPSSK will be available as a free download on July 30th.
Look for updates on the FPE and FPSP website by the end of July for more information about the FPSSK and FPSMC 2010!

<p>Any updates on availability? How about a beta program?</p>
<p>I am working in HCL Technology and want to know about all the feature of FPSMC 2010.</p>
<p>Please see the article I previously wrote about the upcoming FPSMC 2010 release. <a rel="nofollow" target="_new" href="http://blogs.technet.com/b/fss/archive/2010/10/25/forefront-protection-server-management-console-2010-update.aspx">blogs.technet.com/.../forefront-protection-server-management-console-2010-update.aspx</a></p>
<p>How do we manage Forefront Protection Suite (FPS) endpoints in an SBS network without affording a full blown, overkill System Center Server?</p>
