Endpoint Protection

Endpoint Protection manages antimalware policies and Windows Firewall security for client computers in your Configuration Manager hierarchy. 

When you use Endpoint Protection with Configuration Manager, you have the following benefits:

  • Configure antimalware policies, Windows Firewall settings, and manage Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection to selected groups of computers
  • Use Configuration Manager software updates to download the latest antimalware definition files to keep client computers up-to-date
  • Send email notifications, use in-console monitoring, and view reports. These actions inform administrative users when malware is detected on client computers.
