McAfee Agentless vs Multi-Platform

Our organization is going to be implementing McAfee Move into our VMware environment. We had a few questions before we tested this in our environment. In our test environment we wanted to weigh the positives and negatives of testing both MP vs Agentless at the same time in our test environment. The reason for this would be to reduce time of testing and get a solution for our production environment. If this would not be possible, would we have to build one out, rip it out and implement the other solution in. Our environment is 80 percent instant clones and 20 percent static vms.

Re: McAfee Agentless vs Multi-Platform

Hi @User47189237 

As long as you have your security group for the Agentless VMs defined to exclude all of the MOVE Multiplatform VMs (Clients, SVMs, and the SVM Manager) from its membership you should be totally fine testing both solutions simultaneously.

The two major concerns would be ensuring that you have separate policies defined in the ePO server for your two different MOVE testing groups, and that your testbed isn't so large that you saturate the network running both solutions on the same cluster.


Thank you,
Mitchell Buehler
