  • What ways can i push out Windows Defender to client machines?

    My boss set me this task, and he said to find out how we can push this out by any means necessary, now i have already suggested GPO and ePO, but he says there is a better way to push it out, i have a feeling it has something to do with .msi files, now what is a good way to distribute these files so they install on clients machines, because i cant think of it somethin that isn't third party software

    i bet the answer is right in my face but i can't get at it

    any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance

    I'm sure thay you cannot push it with ePO.

    I thinking about:

    GPO
    SMS
    wsus maybe?
