Hi

System Center is the suite of products not just SCCM, SCCM is "System Center Configuration Manager" in the suite, same as System Center Operations Manager" is part of the suite.

Endpoint protection is managed by the SCCM install/console as it is part of SCCM now, so it is not a product on its own really but managed from within SCCM console.

Hope that helps
