Can McAfee RealProtect be run in parallel with other security solutions?

Jump to solution

Is it safe to run the standalone version of McAfee RealProtect alongside other non-McAfee security solutions such as a Firewall or AntiMalware?

Hi @ApLabs,

Good Question. Real Protect is not standalone in Enterprise solutions. In order to leverage Real protect, you need to have ATP installed. In order to ensure ATP works fine, You need to have Threat prevention installed. Basically you will be installing the Endpoint Security suite with it. 

Hence, running another Anti-malware program along with Endpoint Security is not recommended.

However, you can run a third party host based firewall along with ENS, provided, ENS Firewall is not installed! i sincerely hope this information helps!
