Also, can anyone give any comments as to how effective Microsoft Forefront endpoint solution is as an antivirus
solution (in addition to performance, deployment, maintenance...) ?

We also have switched to SCEP and SCCM. It seems to work better than our previous solution and is a lighter weight
client. SCCM took longer to setup than ePO, but even so it wasn't that big a deal to do.

We use SCEP with SCCM and it works well. The price is great and its really easy to manage using SCCM. With SCCM you
have good built in reports and it allows you to create custom reports as well if you like to look at reports.

Does anyone currently use the new Microsoft Endpoint 2012 product in their environment? If so can you share your
thoughts on the product in terms of performance, deployment, maintenance, etc. The price point (free) makes it a pretty
enticing option to replace Symantec Endpoint Security which has been less than stellar.
