Microsoft has just release the “Microsoft Security Essentials 2” and I just loved it, not only because of some new features like:
Network inspection system
Windows Firewall integration
Enhanced protection for web-based threats
New protection engine
But also the are some secret changes:
1) You can now install the MSE on Server platforms. I’ve just tested it on Windows Server 2008 x86 & x64 and also the new Windows Server 2008 R2 x64.
Before this I had to install the great Microsoft Forefront Client Security, by just a little [hacky] command file; but this was not the problem, the problem was I had to configure WSUS to download the definition updates for both MSE and Forefront and file size was about 150MB average.
2) WSUS download the MSE 2.0 Definition updates cumulatively, means less download size if you want to download the definition daily or more.
