Forefront Client Security installed on File/Application servers?

Discussion in 'Windows Server' started by Richard Perry, Sep 7, 2007.

  1. My CTO is looking for specific evidence that installing Forefront Client
    Security on a Windows Server 2003 (Enterprise R2 SP2) file server is a
    necessary step. For the last 2 years, we ran NOD32 on our servers (and
    clients), but have recently migrated to Forefront.

    Can anyone point me to documentation that states that FCS is a valid
    software package for a file server? I can see it is a supported client,
    meets the system requirements, but I can't find anything that says "You need
    anti-virus on your servers, and FCS is a good choice for that".

    Thank you for using newsgroup!

    Based on my knowledge, there is no separate edition of Forefront Client
    Security for File/Application server. For more related information about
    requirement of Forefront Client Security, please refer to:
