Forefront Protection for Exchange 2010 on SBS 2008

I have read in various places that Forefront Protection for Exchange 2010 on SBS 2008 can be used to scan the Exchange 2007 component of SBS 2008 for viruses/malware/spyware etc...

Can it ALSO be used for scanning the file system on SBS 2008 as well, or does another Forefront product need to be installed as well to do file system/memory/active monitoring on SBS 2008?

What product from the Forefront family would co-exist with FPE and work on SBS 2008 for file system/memory/active monitoring?
