    Microsoft recently announced that Forefront Endpoint Protection will be moving from the Enterprise CAL to the Core CAL on Aug 1, 2011. Without getting too deep into licensing (and likely drowning in confusion), some customers can start using the new features now. We are starting to get clients asking us about FEP and there isn't much information out there. I may not take the test for this unless it is required for some POC funding, but the Skills Measured on the exam is the best breakdown I could find for the required FEP skills.

    Thanks for putting this together. This was a big help in solving the issues that I was having getting Forefront up and going.

    Hi Claymoore, thank you very much for posting this - was finding it hard to find resources for this exam.

    Has anyone here taken it yet?

    Will be looking to undertake this exam as it's been added as a requirement for the Identity and Security Microsoft Partner Competency.
