Exam Objectives

The following exam objectives are covered in this lab:

  • Apply secure design principles to network architecture (e.g., IP & non-IP protocols, segmentation)
  • Secure network components
  • Design and establish secure communication channels
  • Prevent or mitigate network attacks

Exercise 1 - Installing an Endpoint Protection Site System Role

Before using Endpoint Protection, the Endpoint Protection site system role must be installed on any one site system server. In this exercise, you will learn how to install an Endpoint Protection site system role.

Exercise 2 - Configure Definition Updates for Endpoint Protection

With Endpoint Protection, you can update antimalware definitions on client computers.
