Preparing for installation

Before installing Security for Exchange, make sure all requirements are met, otherwise Bitdefender Endpoint Security Tools might be installed without the Exchange Protection module.

For the Exchange Protection module to run smoothly and to prevent conflicts and unwanted results, remove any antimalware and email filtering agents.

Bitdefender Endpoint Security Tools automatically detects and removes most of the antimalware products and disables the antimalware agent built in Exchange Server since the 2013 version. For details regarding the detected security software list, refer to Software incompatible with Bitdefender Endpoint Security Tools.

You can manually re-enable the built-in Exchange antimalware agent at any time, nevertheless it is not recommended to do so.

Installing protection on Exchange Servers

To protect your Exchange Servers, you must install Bitdefender Endpoint Security Tools with Exchange Protection role on each of them.

You have several options to deploy Bitdefender Endpoint Security Tools on Exchange Servers:

  • Local installation, by downloading and running the installation package on the server.

  • Remote installation, by running an Install task.

  • Remote, by running the Reconfigure client task, if Bitdefender Endpoint Security Tools already offers file system protection on the server.

For detailed installation steps, refer to Security agents.
