Unfortuanaly - not directly.

For business users Microsoft had other security solutions in the past (e.g. Forefront sales ended first december...).

Still you have multiple options:

  • You can buy & switch to Windows 8. (PreInstalled Windows 8 Defender contains the Security Essentials virus scanner engine... (the one for Windows <=7 doesn't))
  • If it should be free you can switch to COmmodo Internet Security, which is also free for business users
  • You can buy another scanner

With 40 PCs you can think about a centralized approach.
