Today, we announced the release of Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 (FEP). True to Microsoft’s continued commitment to reduce costs and improve security, FEP delivers new efficiencies for IT security and operations. It is deployed, configured, managed, updated, and reported on through Configuration Manager, Microsoft’s configuration management solution. To provide guidance on this topic, we’ve just published a new white paper that explains how FEP and System Center Configuration Manager together deliver on this oft-discussed topic of security and management convergence.
The paper describes the inclusion of FEP into Configuration Manager and what that means for organizations. For IT interested in learning more about convergence, it discusses how combining security and client management into a single work stream breaks down the artificial barriers typically created between these practices. And how organizations can use the integration to cut process friction, raise effectiveness, and enhance overall manageability. Check out the white paper and read more about how consolidating security and management can save your company money and improve security processes.
