Why is ENS 10.6.1 maintained alongside 10.7.0

Jump to solution

I wondered why Endpoint Security 10.6.1 is still being maintained with monthly patches, alongside Endpoint Security 10.7.0?

Are there any technical reasons why anyone should remain on 10.6.1 rather than migrate to 10.7.0?  As far as I am aware the system requirements are the same, and if checked into ePolicy Orchestrator, they share the same policies.

Hello Chris_Heys,

Thank you for writing. ENS 10.6 and ENS 10.7 do have modifications from the product perspective with additional features. McAfee always recommends its customers always stay in the latest version of the releases since it would have covered fixes on the issues seen in earlier versions. So yes, we should be planning on upgrading to the latest ENS versions.

Maybe you could refer to the article below which would shine some light on new features and Enhancements in ENS 10.7.x
https://docs.mcafee.com/bundle/endpoint-security-10.7.x-release-notes/page/GUID-5184AA07-C0CC-4F24-A...

As far as I could we ENS 10.6.x is currently not in the plan of End of Life but ENS 10.5.x is already set on it and also the End of support would be "11/12/2020".

You could refer to https://www.mcafee.com/enterprise/en-in/support/product-eol.html which would document all products and its plan of EOL
