Microsoft Forefront?

Hi guys, i've just installed Ms forefront client security and everything went ok. Question is : What's the use of ms forefront? does it also act as a firewall? or just simply act like common anti-spyware/virus program?

It's basically a compilation of anti-virus and spyware software. It's different than normal software because it's specifically designed to work with business networks and integrate with Exchange.
