I tried searching through the forums thinking this was asked before, but I did not find anything that quite matched my inquiry. I currently have a 3 license McAfee subscription, and it works fine because all of my machines are Windows based (Vista or 7). However, I am considering moving my desktop to Linux (probably Ubuntu or Mandriva), and as far as I can tell I will not be able to just install VirusScan on a Linux machine with an existing license, mostly because it seems the only Linux compatible distribution McAfee offers is in the Enterprise category.
Is this accurate? Or is there a separate branch of consumer VirusScan that is compatible with Linux?
Yes it's only compatible with Windws XP SP2 or later (x86 only), Vista x86 or x64 & Windows 7 x86 or x64.
There is a VirusScan Enterprise specifically made for Linux: http://www.mcafee.com/us/enterprise/products/system_security/servers/linuxshield.html
Questions regarding that should go here: https://community.mcafee.com/community/business/system/vs-other
With all Enterprise/Business products multiple licensing is required so they tend to be a lot more expensive.
There are probably 30-day trials available however.Message was edited by: Ex_Brit on 12/09/10 8:23:14 EDT AM
