The McAfee Agent allows for managed policy and task operation of anti-malware products through the ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) server. The Information Security Office (ISO) maintain a central console to set and administer security guidelines for computer systems within the University network through this system. For example, ISO can provide McAfee VirusScan updates locally rather than requiring the user to obtain them directly from McAfee. The agent is included with new installations of VirusScan starting with version 8.5i, or as a standalone install.
The Agent is now the University supported method of installation for all Windows McAfee products. When it is first installed it will immediately attempt to contact the server to download and install the latest security products and configurations.
