System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) Update and System Center 2012 EndpointProtection
ITS is currently working on deploying our new System Center Configuration Manager Client for computers throughout the University.  We will be rollingthis out to key areas on specific dates over the course of January (you can contact your department IMO for the specific schedule).  Once the updates have been completed for your area, you will see a notification in the system tray stating that the System Center Configuration Manger client has been installed.  You do not need to do anything as this is just a notification to inform you that the installation has been completed.  In addition to the SCCM upgrade, your antivirus client will also be updated to the latest version released from Microsoft.  This new version is called System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection and will replace Microsoft Forefront.
