  1. Support monitoring only for endpoint protection (no remediation)

    Endpoint Protection - Monitoring mode only.

    Sometimes, in first Endpoint Protection deploying in specific business sensetive networks, we need option to detect malwares and monitor only without any actions with malwares. If malware detected Endpoint Protection will only report to SCCM console and no other actions. SCCM administrator will decide what to do with the detected malicious objects, so as not to stop the business process if it is infected.

    • delete from quarantine

      To remove malware from clients I have to log into each client, go into the history and delete the infection from there? I'm really surprised I cannot do this from the SCCM console.

      • security center (WDATP) data in console Like Endpoint Protection status

        I like to have the Data from the securitycenter.windows.com (WDATP) with all the new 1709 Defender features back in to the Console, we have the Endpoint Protection status in there, but It would be really nice to have all the exploit data visible in the console in the Monitoring / Security Workspace. also the possibility to Isolate Machines and so on. One Console for anything.

        • More details reports OOB and easily dashboard that can be easily customize for SCEP

          Our security guys find that the OOB reports are not as details as let say Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager. Would love to see out of the box reports. Also, the Collection drop down list on the reports or console in relationship to SCEP does not work well with RBA. I have multiple I.T departments and I set up Collections for each sites for restriction where each site can only see their own collection. When in SCEP, the drop down collection list will show as empty.

          • Support for uninstall password for 3rd party enterprise antivirus.

            Support for uninstall password for 3rd party enterprise antivirus.
            Symantec especially, but the more support the better.
            This would help tremendously with migrations to Endpoint Protection.

            • Add "source IP" filed in SCEP alert to indicate malware infection source for worms

              I suggest to add the “source IP” field to indicate where the worm like malware comes from, especially for Ransomware WannaCrypt.

              We know that Wannacrypt exploits vulnerability in SMBv1 to spread as worm, so in such scenarios, if the detection alert can have an attribute about which source computer exploits the vulnerability and drops the malware payload, that would be great help to customer locating the source computer. This applies to other worms.

              Expected detection from 3rd party AM product

              • Endpoint protection : Report for windows defender AV with definitions and With Cloud based protection

                In Windows 10 Creators Update, the Windows Defender AV client uploads suspicious files to the cloud protection service for rapid analysis.

                In SCCM, we can see al malxare detected by the traditionnal Windows defender AV (working with definition).
                Can we aad a report on malware (or suspicious files) detected by the Cloud protection service ?

                • Please Fix SCEP reports

                  Hi all,

                  I found two strange things in the 'Antimalware overall status and history' SCEP report.

                  The first (Overall Endpoint Protection status and history part):
                  (q1_a.png, q1_b.png, q1_c.png included)
                  The problem is that when the daily data goes to the historical table the ‘inactive’ and the ‘not installed’ counters will be the same. For instance, if I have 50 inactive clients they will be represented as with 50 ‘not installed’ too. Or customer was nerves about this statistic, because no machine can go into the production network without SCEP, but they see lots of ‘not installed’ in the report. This…

                  • Please include the option to include MONTHLY FULL scans on systems.

                    Currently we do not have the option to configure monthly full virus scans on our servers. Daily quick or full scans on hundreds of servers is not a very optimal solution.

                      • Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection - Collect/Surface Log Data

                        https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/threat-protection/windows-defender-atp/event-error-codes-windows-defender-advanced-threat-protection

                        The ConfigMgr client should collect event log troubleshooting data for Win Defender ATP. The data should be surfaced in the dashboard and be available for creating dynamic collections queries (so you can act on it). A security tool that doesn't clearly show you where it is/isn't working is very problematic.

                        • SCEP/Endpoint Allow Custom Threat List

                          SCEP/Endpoint Protection should allow admins to add a custom file names, folders, or extensions as a threat. This would be very helpful in zero day vulnerabilities.

                          • I would like to request for an downloadable link to the latest SCEP Installer

                            I would like to request for an downloadable link to the latest SCEP Installer. I have a restricted environment that is not managed by config manager. We have SCEP running on over 200k clients, configured by GPO. These machines are deployed using images. To ensure the client is not required to download SCEP+SP1+definition updates, the intent is to pre-load the updated VHD/WIM with the latest version of SCEP, so that the server is not taxed with having to download those updates from WSUS.

                            • SCEP/Endpoint Protection logging

                              I would like Endpoint Protection to do one of the following things:
                              a. Log to file/winevent when infected - on the actual client
                              b. Log to file/winevent when infected - on server

                              For all the Companies using log analytics tools there are no good way to get the information. We use a custom sql-trigger to kick off a PowerShell script which writes an logentry to EventLog on the server. That is suboptimal to say at least.

                              The dashboards for EP in ConfigMgr is not good enough and really ineffective when you have a lot of detections.

                                We would like an information channel, where MS disposes information on the behavior of the Endpoint Protection product. Especially when things change but also how things are now (logic, build-in defaults, parameterization and how to configure, etc...).
                                E.g. : We recently had a 'false positive' Worm:Win32/Bluber.A detected in C:\Windows\System32\sysinfo.ocx file. In this case, we chose to 'quick fix' this issue by performing a 'Restore files quarantined by this threat' (see picture). This action creates an exception rule for the detection and remediation of this particular threat, on the SCCM EP GPO. This exception is only temporary; it used to be…

                                • More granular settings for Endpoint Protection alerts for malware detection and alerting.

                                  Currently SCCM lets you enable/disable some settings like the newer feature of PUA. It does not allow for alerts of malware and Endpoint Protection to be configured independently. Just because I want it detected, may not mean I wanted it reported on. We like PUA's being detected, but we do not want to be alerted on PUA, because we get too many each week, most of which are valid installers we use. We do not want to exclude them, because a new version of the .exe may have something we are not aware of. I would like to see alerts…

                                    • Include always latest SCEP client in the SCCM client directory/package

                                      Please include always latest SCEP client in the SCCM client directory/package.

                                      e.g. in SCCM1610 still the SCEP client 4.7.214.0 is included.
                                      Current version is 4.10.209.0.

                                      So additional effort can be reduced as the SCEP client will be updated with SCCM client auto-upgrade function.

                                      • Include latest antimalware platform release with ConfigMgr client

                                        New anti-malware platform updates are released periodically. It would be good to have the latest version included as part of the ConfigMgr client installation so that clients can take advantage of the latest features in Endpoint Protection.

                                        • Windows Defender Offline Scan - Endpoint Protection Client Action, Schedule

                                          Integrate some management of Windows Defender Offline Scan. For a first iteration, add the ability to schedule an offline scan during next reboot to Fast Channel Notifications.

                                          On a future iteration, allow anti-malware policy to schedule an offline scan every X days on reboot.
