No, they are not. Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 is the next generation of Forefront Client Security. Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 is a centrally-managed solution designed to protect endpoints from threats that may compromise information or productivity. It includes antimalware, firewall management, and other protection technologies. Forefront Endpoint Protection (FEP) is built on System Center Configuration Manager 2007 and enables unified console for client security and systems management – (Forefront Client Security integrates with Microsoft Operations Manager 2005).
