Microsoft IT Showcase is pleased to announce the publication of Microsoft IT Increases Security and Streamlines Antimalware Management by Using Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010, which discusses how Microsoft IT deployed Microsoft Forefront™ Endpoint Protection 2010 to simplify and improve endpoint protection.
Microsoft Information Technology (Microsoft IT) deployed Microsoft Forefront™ Endpoint Protection 2010 to simplify and improve endpoint protection. Because Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 builds on Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2 and R3, Microsoft IT was able to use its existing infrastructure to implement a centralized antimalware management and reporting solution that provides a holistic view of more than 100,000 clients' malware status and reduces the number of systems running outdated malware definitions. Using Forefront Endpoint Protection, Microsoft IT improved their SLA for antimalware policy deployment from more than a day to four hours. Technical Case Study
