I just checked in hips 8 and it's extentions in epo 4.6, but when I go to create a new task to deploy it, it's not in the list of products. but I did notice that hips 7.0 exstention was installed and I removed it.
Any thoughts why hips 8 is not in the list of products.
The ePO extensions for Host IPS just manage the product configuration. To deploy the product, you'll need to install the deployment package (HostIPS_Client800LML.Zip) into the ePO Master Repository.
See page 35 (Installing the Windows client remotely) of the installation guide.
