For endpoint security, McAfee provides a more detailed view of system compatibility.
The antivirus software has to be installed with administrator rights. Furthermore other antivirus software has to be uninstalled beforehand and the system should be rebooted before beginning with the installation.
It is strongly recommended to keep the antivirus software at the latest patch level. Among other things patches can enable/improve the compatibility (especially for newer versions of Windows), enhance scan performance, and address security issues.
Installation tips for Endpoint Security 10.7
The new virusscanner Endpoint Security has a modular concept. There is always a general modul installed and on top of that modul additionally modules for specific tasks can be added. Currently, the following three modules have been licenced by the KIT:
- Firewall module
- Web Control module (supports Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Chrom)
- Threat Protection module
During a manual installation, the additional modules have to be selected. Currently, it is suggested not to install the firewall module. On managed systems, the firewall module will be removed by the McAfee Agent unless otherwise configured by the responsible IT administrator.
After the installation of the web control module, the modul has to be enabled/permitted when starting a supported web browser for the first time. The web control module enables the centralized control to permit or deny the access to dangerous web sites (e.g. web sites containing malware or phishing sites).
