CSP and Endpoint Protection best practice

Created: 12 Sep 2012 | 2 comments

Clearly there are areas where EP and CSP overlap. We currently use EP and are looking at CSP. We currently install most features of EP excluding the email scanning. Is there any guidance on whether both products will exist happily on the same machine? Should we for example uninstall the IPS features in SEP when installing the CSP agent? Is there any best practice around both products being installed on the same machine?

You can use both products on the same machine with all features enabled --  most of my customers do this. SEP is an excellent addition to SCSP, as the active firewall will automatically block IP addresses for 10 min wen nefarious behavior is detected, and will add another layer of protection against malware.

One caveat -- you need to have separate machines for the SEP Manager and the SCSP manager.
