Forefront Endpoint Protection 2012 Beta 2 is now available!
During the second half of 2011 Microsoft will release the next version of System Center Configuration Manager 2012 and in near future after that a new version of FEP will also be released. The new version of FEP will be integrated with SCCM 2012 so you can use all the new features available in SCCM 2012 like rolebased delegation and much more.
The Forefront Endpoint Protection 2012 Beta 2 which is available now have all the integration with SCCM 2012 built in. So are you testing and playing around with SCCM 2012 Beta 2, I really recommend that you download and install FEP 2012 Beta 2 as well so you are ready for it when it is released. The FEP client is still 2010, it is only the integration with SCCM 2012 that is new.
