Management server does not download defs. Clients wil take it from Internet.

This reduces the space and easy to manage. 

It has no clue about your unmanged computers in your network. it will start reporting  to SEPM only after installing the package. more info in here

All your above requirement can be fullfilled by using SEP on premisis product.
