Forefront Client Security to use Windows updates when WSUS not available

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
Hi all,
We currently deploy Forefront Client Security as our AV product to our estate and we use WSUS to get any definition update required.
However, we have a number of laptops that have been taken off site and have not been receiving any virus definition updates because they are off the domain.
We have a GPO in place that disables Windows Updates on all clients and redirects it to our WSUS server and we then use SCCM to push out our updates.
We also have a VPN client that won't allow you to connect to the network unless your virus definitions are up to date. This is obviously an issue as anyone who has a laptop and hasn't connected to the domain in a while won't have the latest windows updates
or virus definitions applied.
We need a way of ensuring those laptops get the latest updates before connecting via VPN.
Is there any way to do this?
Rgds,
Mark

Hi,
You could use NAP feature in SCCM 2007 which can help protect the integrity of your enterprise network to  enforce compliance of software updates on client computers.
