McAfee ATD Cisco ESA How to Guide

Version 1

    This “How to Guide” provides instructions for setting up McAfee® Advanced Threat Defense (ATD) Email Connector with Cisco© Email Security Appliance (ESA). The McAfee Email Connector, when interoperating with ESA, will function as a mail transfer agent (MTA) to scan messages that contain attachments.  

    Through the interoperation of ESA and the Email Connector, ESA scans messages using its varying security engines and if it determines the message to be delivered/clean but still needs to be scanned by ATD the message will be relayed to the ATD Email Connector for further inspection. The Email Connector receives the message from ESA via SMTP, and will begin to scan the attachment using its advanced detection capability.
