Client Anti-Virus for servers

Created: 06 Sep 2013 • Updated: 06 Sep 2013 | 4 comments

When creating install packages for clients, is there a way in SEPM to create a SEP package for servers?  Looking at the clients on our current servers the GUI is different from that of a desktop/notebook.

I'm guessing because it is a different install package for a server than your standard desktop/notebook?

right,

its different'

SEP  has three components
1. Antivirus and antispyware
2. Practive threat protection (sonar)
3. Network threat protection ( firewall component)
 
In most of the environments on servers its only AV/AS, 
for desktops you can consider installing all the components. for servers only AV/AS

Screenshot is attached to the reference, In the SEPM console you have predefined templates to select one of them while exporting a package.

One of them feature set is installed in your environment as well for Server operating systems.

Hi Skiextreme2013,

"Thumbs up" to the advice and links above.

If possible, be sure to include at least IPS in the protection that you are putting in place on the servers.  Adding IPS to Av greatly improves your defenses.

Hope this helps!

With thanks and best regards,
