Hi All :

   Endpoint Protection in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager (SCEP 2012) lets you manage antimalware policies and Windows Firewall security for client computers in your Configuration Manager hierarchy.

   When you use Endpoint Protection with Configuration Manager, you benefit from the following:

  • You can configure antimalware policies and Windows Firewall settings to selected groups of computers, by using custom antimalware policies and client settings.
  • You can use Configuration Manager software updates to download the latest antimalware definition files to keep client computers up-to-date.
  • You can send email notifications, use in-console monitoring, and view reports to keep administrative users informed when malware is detected on client computers.

   Endpoint Protection installs its own client in addition to the Configuration Manager client. The Endpoint Protection client has the following capabilities:

  • Malware and Spyware detection and remediation.
  • Rootkit detection and remediation.
  • Critical vulnerability assessment and automatic definition and engine updates.
  • Network vulnerability detection via Network Inspection System.
  • Integration with Microsoft Active Protection Services to report malware to Microsoft. When you join this service, the Endpoint Protection client can download the latest definitions from the Malware Protection Center when unidentified malware is detected on a computer.

    In this document , I will to show how to enable Endpoint Protection Point and configure EP agent to client .
