The Convergence of Desktop Security and Management
Security and management have traditionally existed as two separate disciplines, yet both play a central role in keeping your users safe and productive. Critical threat detection, outbreak response, and system remediation are important aspects of security management. Proper system configuration, deploying patches and security updates are hallmarks of good systems management.
Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 allows you to consolidate desktop security and management in a single solution, because it is built on System Center Configuration Manager 2007. That means in many cases you can use your existing client management infrastructure to deploy and manage your endpoint protection. This shared infrastructure reduces costs and provides you with improved visibility and control over the risks associated with client systems.
