automatic minor version updates with ePO

Our Nessus scanner flags the minor version of Endpoint Security Platform, which I have confirmed as the actual version currently running on our servers. A newer minor version is available, but I don't know how to use the ePO to deploy it automatically. Is there any way to configure the ePO to keep all of our servers updated to the most recent minor version update? We do Nessus scans every week, and I need to keep our McAfee products as updated as I can.

Re: automatic minor version updates with ePO


It's like you ask (Can i autoaprove all Windows Updates for my 20'000 clients and 2'000 server automatic in WSUS???) Because we have no time to do and manage or blown up SIEM 6hrs a day.

Yes you CAN but for what do you think IT is there? To read blogs, test, and then approve.



A clear NO and not recommended. The only thing you can currently auto update is:



* VSE Patches

Because of the complexity of ENS and it's several Windows Installer Modules (Platform, Exploit, Advanced Threat, Web, Firewall) this is NOT recommended. 


I know the updates process every TWO months is work. 

But come on? The only TOP CIO Game is Ransomware and you don't want to mess with that right?

So hire people for Mcafee AND or team up with an IT-Service company who is Mcafee Partner.

1) You have the right product

2) It goes from SBS very small to Enterprise big Box boom

3) It does it all on one platform. 

4) It supports LINUX/TUX, Mac, apple Windows etc.

You manage the wrong product. Manage Mcafee (Clients/Server/Gateway/IPS-Appliance/EPO) and you don't need NEXUS or SIEM scanner.

Just my experience and was on all sides of the game.

Because you come from security side. Did you know that the EXPLOIT Module of ENS has around 400 IPS Filters like a Cisco or Fortigate Firewall?
