Supported AV clients for SCEP to automatically remove

I’ve just spent a frustrating 10 minutes searching bing/google for the list of the supported anti-virus programs that SCEP (System Center Endpoint Protection) can automatically uninstall. So to save my scalp for a future hair pulling, I thought I’d blog the list so I can find it quickly next time. Hopefully bing/google will index this post and save us all some time!

Automatically remove previously installed antimalware software before Endpoint Protection is installed

Endpoint Protection uninstalls the following antimalware software only:

  • Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition version 10
  • Symantec Endpoint Protection version 11
  • Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition version 12
  • McAfee VirusScan Enterprise version 8
  • Trend Micro OfficeScan
  • Microsoft Forefront Codename Stirling Beta 2
  • Microsoft Forefront Codename Stirling Beta 3
