Forefront Security for SharePoint with Service Pack 2 was released today!


Hi all. My name is Steve Lindsay and I’m a developer in the tools and infrastructure test

group for Forefront Server Security. My role involves writing the test tools and

infrastructure used by the test team to write automated test plans against the Forefront

suite of products. I’ll be getting a little more involved with the blog over the coming

weeks but I thought I’d start by bringing you a quick post letting you know that we

released Forefront Security for SharePoint with Service Pack 2 today.



SharepointThe goal of this release is to provide

support for the new Windows Server

2008 platform, expand the keyword

filtering capabilities by including

installable lists to help customers

filter out profanity and discriminatory

words in 11 languages, and provide a

roll-up of software fixes that help

facilitate the administration of this

security solution.



You should upgrade to Forefront Security for SharePoint with Service Pack 2 if you are

moving to Windows Server 2008 or want to take advantage of the new installable

profanity and discriminatory keyword lists.  You are also encouraged to upgrade to the

SP2 release to install a roll-up of the latest software fixes.

    Can you now (post SP2) run ForeFront for SharePoint and Exchange on the same server box?

    Previously (SP1) it was an unsupported configuration.

    Is there a separate download of ONLY SP2?  I already have Forefront Security for Sharepoint installed and I just want to apply SP2.
