In part 4 of this series, I turn to Data Protection Manager and I revisit Endpoint Protection. For those of you who might have seen earlier one of my earlier study guides, you will see that I have already put out a study guide for Forefront Endpoint Protection. In this post, I will focus exclusively on Endpoint Protection as it relates to System Center 2012.
As I did in Part 2 of this series, I want to start with a brief explanation of these two components of System Center 2012. I do this with the lesser-known components of the System Center suite for those who may not know what these tools do. Hopefully these brief explanations are helpful in setting the stage.
Data Protection Manager -"enables disk-based and tape-based data protection and recovery for servers such as SQL Server, Exchange Server, SharePoint, virtual servers, file servers, and support for Windows desktops and laptops. DPM can also centrally manage system state and Bare Metal Recovery (BMR)."
Endpoint Protection - "Microsoft System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection (previously known as Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010) allows you to consolidate desktop security and management in a single solution. "
