Re: What is difference between normal ENS and ENS for servers?

Hello @tekpro ,

Thank you for writing. ENS for servers is just an extension and software that monitors and controls the CPU load of the cloud platform.

ENS for Servers will work with ENS Threat Prevention (Windows and Linux) to minimize the performance impact of resource-intensive tasks like the on-demand scan. Also, please note that this is not a client package that we would install assuming this designed for Windows Server operating systems, ENS for Servers would not even have a client package.

I am adding a few docs that could help you with the functionality and also more insight when we have to compare.

• Product overview:

All the above links are from the Product guide, I hope this would help.

Hi Hitesh,

 

so does that mean normal ENS will also work for Windows server 2016 workloads, meaning the client package is same for both windows 10 & server 2016?

If I want to optmise CPU utlisation, I could still go with the policy based scans in ENS 10.7?

That's correct @tekpro , Normal ENS would work on both Windows client and server operating systems.

Please refer to supported platforms regarding the OS compatibility:   https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB82761

ENS for servers is just an addition in EPO specifically giving the user more opportunity to configure the ODS with smart scanning. And also yes, being on the latest ENS 10.7 allows you to throttle CPU usage in On-demand scan to optimize the usage accordingly.

Please refer: https://docs.mcafee.com/bundle/endpoint-security-10.7.x-threat-prevention-product-guide-windows/page...
