Hi there,

Yes I think it does - see the following: http://www.microsoft.com/systemcenter/en/us/essentials/sce-features.aspx

"•Remote control support for managed client and server computers"

Essentials has taken a very similar approach to McAfee, where you install an agent on the client computer, and use policy based administration. I was looking into this as well. I am impressed with essentials, and like it as an AV suite. I don't see issues with it as I do with third party software that blocks some domain features.

I believe, (also like McAfee), you can deploy these agents from a remote location with domain admin rights.
