Mcafee Endpoint firewall remote update question

Jump to solution

Hi Team ! I am an admin on a domain with about 10.000 windows workstations containing Mcafee endpoint security and mcafee firewall. Recently i received a lot of tickets in regards to the workstation telling us that some of theworkstations are not being updated. Is there a tool that i can use to remotely check the machine status of mcafee if online ? I am just using sccm center to check if the mcafee process is running properly and what version , but it will not tell me if the DAT file is up to date. Please let me know if you have an Idea. I was thinking about woring a batch that will ask me for the remote computer name , then check if it is online and then also check that status of the dat file. Ids there any program or command line available to check remotely ? Thank you ! Kind regards Frank

Hi Frank,

You want to say that, you manage all workstation local without McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator?

I can't imagine, how is it possible managing 10 thousand workstations without the central administration.

You can download McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator under your McAfee Grant Number - that is your customer ID from McAfee.

Best Regards,

Pavel

Hi Frank,

         You have posted in the 'Consumer' area. I can move it to VSE/Endpoint Security where it will get better assistance and exposure.

Hi Frank,

if you need find information about McAfee DAT version, you can use combination Queries and Dashboard in ePolicy Orchestrator.

I added screenshot from our testing environment, where you can see etc.some type of information.

Yes Pavel that is correct , I am currently doing that manually.

Sorry to ask again ... With this Policy Orchestrator I am able to update the machines remotely on our domain ?

Thank you very much !

ePolicy Orchestrator is management console for administration almost all McAfee products.

You have to install ePO on separate server and then.

You can manage:

- Deployment of products

- Realtime check all of your product and devices

- and much more
