Endpoint Security Platform alone

Jump to solution

Hello,

On one station, I had to uninstall Adaptive Threat Protection and Threat Prevention. Only things left are Agent and Endpoint Security Platform (10.6.1.1124).

 

Can someone confirm me, that ESP is just basic Antivirus with basic protection, or is it really just a platform that doesn´t work alone? Thing is, if I let it like it is right now, is this station protected at all?

Thank you!

Hi @optiplex,

Thank you for your post! Your second assumption is correct! This is just the platform component that cannot work all by itself. However, I am surprised that the component is still there. Usually the last component we uninstall from the machine (Endpoint Security Threat Prevention in general) should remove endpoint security platform as well! Hence it is very strange that the component still exists in your machine!

May I know what method was used for uninstallation? I would recommend uninstalling the endpoint Security Platform component if it is still present on the PC.

Also, You can be assured that this component's existence does not really protect your PC!

Hi @optiplex 

With the ENS Suite you have:

ENS Platform, ENS Threat Prevention, ENS Adaptive Threat Protection, Web Control and Firewall.

The Platform is essentially a container that manages all of the other ENS products. It controls the general settings, log level, etc.

The traditional Antivirus is: ENS Threat Prevention - you would need this to be installed and for the daily content updates to be applied, for the system to be protected.

Thank you for your response!

Platform really was uninstalled with other components, I just deployed it later alone.

 

Thank you again, this was helpful and I failed to find straight answer for this.
