Seems to be a trend... We are also in the process of replacing ePO with SCEP & SCCM

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.

Greetings Everyone,

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.
