For a Windows Server 2012 Standard GUI version to support a small IDE
Getting malware protection on my 1st server has become a much bigger problem than I imagined it would. My research covered a lot of pages, but the following 2 links stand out:
I'm not wanting to start an opinion war so if this post is asked in the wrong forum or wrong way, just let me know.
But I need to install some kind of malware protection for my development environment and I can't figure out what to do. Since I'm not managing a large pool of servers or clients, it would seem Defender should be adequate until I am more experienced and understand what I'm getting into with larger malware detection management systems.
But I'm not even sure Defender can be installed and maintained on Server 2012 or how to do it, so if someone could give simple instructions to install Defender on Server 2012 assuming it is an acceptable/supported solution I'd appreciate it. My IDE servers aren't really exposed to attack all that much, but obviously I need some form of protection.
Solution based on answer below:
I wanted to follow up with a result for others new to servers as myself. I created an SCCM install disk from the .iso file on my Microsoft subscription page and then found scepinstall.exe in the directory \smssetup\client. I ran it from the CD and it installed 'System Center Endpoint Protection' which is effectively and therefore looks like Defender. My big lesson, I was looking for the wrong name. Again, big thx to Greg. I'll start learning SCCM now...
