Want to distribute the Forefront Client using ConfigMgr 2007? Microsoft has posted a new KB Article you’ll want to review:
Listen while you work…
Just ran across this and thought I’d share…
The Forefront Client Security Deployment Tool is a free toolkit that is meant to provide additional deployment capabilities in addition to those who are available with the RTM Version of FCS . This tool gives network and security administrators the ability to scan their network and/or AD, discover existing solutions that are already installed on their clients, uninstall the existing solution and install FCS Client – all in one.
The Forefront Client Security team is pleased to announce the public availability of the Microsoft Forefront Integration Kit for Network Access Protection (NAP)!
NAP is a technology provided with Windows Server 2008, and works with Vista and Windows XP with Service Pack 3. With NAP, you can restrict network access based on the computer’s compliance with your corporate security policy. Computers out of compliance can be prevented from accessing the network until they have remediated the items out of compliance.
For more information about the Integration Kit, including features and customer stories, see the Solution Accelerators blog (http://blogs.technet.com/secguide/default.aspx), and the Solution Accelerators TechNet site (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc512112.aspx).
