Forefront Protection 2010 for SharePoint Demo and Interview


Today Forefront Protection 2010 for SharePoint (FPSP) has released so I talked with Noreen, program manager for FPSP, who demoed some of the new capabilities. She answers why you would need protection for SharePoint if you already have local, client anti-virus. She tells us about the major design goals for the product & how we delivered on them. Finally, she tells us what’s new since the previous version of SharePoint protection.  From 4:13 and onward we demo the product, and here’s how it breaks down:

  • Central administration website
  • Server Security Views in the Administrator console: Dashboard, Malware and Filtering Details, Incidents, Quarantine. Configurations: Notifications.
  • 13:27 – Forefront in action: Uploading viruses and items which violate keyword filtering and file type extensions.

Demo notes: When Noreen references O14, she’s referring to SharePoint and Office 2010. With 012, she’s referring to SharePoint and Office 2007.
