FEP 2010 Reports

Updated: January 1, 2011

Applies To: Forefront Endpoint Protection

Forefront Endpoint Protection reports consist of malware and health reports, and operational reports. The section describes where the reports are located, how the reports are run, the kind of information they provide, and the command options available for generated reports.

Forefront Endpoint Protection Security Reports

Forefront Endpoint Protection malware and health reports are located in the Reports node under the Forefront Endpoint Protection node. These reports provide administrators with information about the antimalware protection status of, and malware activity on, client computers where Forefront Endpoint Protection is deployed. There are five predefined Forefront Endpoint Protection reports, three of which are run directly from the Reports node (source reports), and two that are run by clicking links within them.

Additionally, the Computer Details Report can be run by navigating to a collection, selecting a computer, and then in the actions pane clicking Run FEP Computer Details Report. In this instance, the report is filtered to display information for the selected computer.

The Protection, Deployment, Health, and Security status report sections are based on the last status reported by the FEP client software and current collection membership, unless otherwise noted. Malware and Antimalware activity report sections are based on historical information and computers are displayed based on the collections of which the computer was member when the activity occurred.

The following table contains a list of the reports.
