ForeFront protection for SharePoint 2010 whitepaper

Hi guys,

I came across this whitepaper today (through @Joe_Elway) about ForeFront protection for SharePoint 2010. I wanted to share this whitepaper with you.

Here’s some more info:

Forefront Protection 2010 for SharePoint (FPSP) is designed to protect Microsoft Office SharePoint Services (MOSS) 2010 and SharePoint Server 2007 environments from malware and inappropriate content. This is accomplished through tight integration with SharePoint through SharePoint’s VSAPI (Virus Scanning API). The VSAPI provides realtime protection for malware and content scanning. SharePoint database scanning is accomplished through FPSP’s scheduled and on-demand scans. These scans use the SharePoint object model to navigate and retrieve content for scanning. Each of these integrations requires specific permissions and access requirements. This document explains FPSP’s integration with SharePoint as well as details around each of the integration points.
