- [Dan] As an IT technician, have you ever thought how centrally managing an anti-malware solution could make your job so much easier? System Center Endpoint Protection provides this capability and much more. I'm Dan LaChance, and I've been doing IT training and network security management for the past few decades, including using the System Center suite of tools. We'll start in this course by discussing malware types and how they get used to steal or encrypt information, as well as to create botnets. We'll learn about integrating System Center Endpoint Protection with System Center Configuration Management.
This gives us one central place where we can deploy the Endpoint Protection client, a place to configure policies, as well as a place to monitor malware incidents. We also will be learning about how to push out updates to make sure that we've got up-to-date virus signatures for an effective anti-malware solution. Besides using SCCM, we'll also take a look at how to monitor and troubleshoot devices by analyzing client logs using WMI queries and PowerShell cmdlets. So to increase your organization's security posture, join me as we take steps to minimize malware incidents in the enterprise.
