  • Hi!

    Forefront Server Security for Exchange and Forefront Server Security for Sharepoint are specific anti-virus products for the Exchange product and Sharepoint product only. They will not protect ther rest of the server from malware.
    Forefront Client Security is anti-malware product for protecting client and server operatingsystems. FCS can also run on the Exchange and sharepoint servers alongside FSS and will then protect the server OS and filesystem.

    Hope this clarifies things
