I want to know how Forefront Client Security responds when there is no WSUS server available.

I haven't been able to find anything other than "Forefront Client Security requires WSUS" and "Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 (now in beta) will be able to use SCCM."

If a laptop is on the road for a few weeks does it really not get definition updates?  I can go without patches, but I want current definitions.

It amazes me that Forefront could have such a weakness.  Please explain how Forefront gets its updates when it is away from home.

Thanks in advance.
