Moved from Home & Home Office to VirusScan Enterprise for attention. It belongs either here or in firewall Enterprise.

I apologize but VSE 8.8 doesn't have firewall feature.

Hem,

Thanks for your reply.

The product info stated that it has firewall:

McAfee VirusScan Enterprise combines anti-virus, anti-spyware, firewall, and intrusion prevention technologies to stop and remove malicious software. It also extends coverage to new security risks and reduces the cost of responding to outbreaks with the industry’s lowest impact on system performance.

Are you sure about your answer?

Regards,

Marlon

Yes, VSE 8.8 doesn't have firewall features.

'firewall, and intrusion prevention technologies' will be used by product by  name 'HIPS'.


Could some one please move the post to HIPS team?

Hello HIPS team,

Could you please verify that VSE 8.8 doesn't have a firewall feature?

If true, how come the product info stated that it has that feature?

Please enlighten me.

Thanks very much!

VSE 8.8 does not a fully featured firewall, but it does have Port-blocking functionality within Access Protection.  Page 31 of the VSE 8.8 Product Guide.

Hi Kary,

Thanks for replying.

Do you think I need to buy the HIPS software? Which version of HIPS will work on my VSE 8.8?

Thanks,

Marlon
