Hi @User69700180 

Thank you for your post! Endpoint Security threat prevention is the actual Anti Malware component. Endpoint Security Platform is the foundation on top of which Threat Prevention and other modules (like Firewall, Web Control, etc) can work on!

So, It is mandatory that we deploy Endpoint Security Threat Prevention and Endpoint Security platform together as without Platform Threat prevention cannot be installed (it is a pre-requisite) and without Threat prevention platform is nothing but a console with User Interface and no Anti Virus capabilities on your machine!

Hope this information answers your query!

Hello,

Endpoint Security platform is the base and on which all the modules (Threat Prevention, Web Control and Firewall modules) are getting installed.

Threat Prevention — Checks for viruses, spyware, unwanted programs, and other threats by
scanning items — automatically when users access them or on demand at any time.

If you will not install the Platform this will get installed automatically with the other modules.

So basically we can call that Platform is base and on top of that other modules are getting installed.

As best practice please select ENS Platform first and after that other modules of ENS.

For Ex:
If you are using standalone installation and running the setup.exe in that case you will not be able to see the platform but once the installation will get successfully completed, You will be able to see the platform module installed.
