McAfee Agent on VMware Horizon

I am new to the VMware horizon. I understand the concept, in short virtual systems are created and connected by a thin client of some kind, one to one type relation ship.

The question I have, has anyone had issues putting MA on in the VM Horizon systems ? I know the MOVE servers stuff is out there but we are not ready for that. Until we get there I was looking at just deploying the Agent to all the systems and let VSE, HIPS, DLP and the rest of the modules deploy out to them.

Looking for feedback from ePO admins that have some experience in this realm

My ePO environment

ePO 4.6.7

MA - 4.8

VSE - 8.8 P2

HIPS 8 P4 .2970

DLP 9.2 and 9.3

We are running Citrix for our VDI environment, which is similiar to what Horizon is. No issues with deploying MA to the master image and all the other products. I would really advise to use MOVE instead of VSE as it really takes the burden of having an client-side viruscanner installed. We've actually never used VSE on our VDI's only MOVE.


Re: McAfee Agent on VMware Horizon

Does the move need its own server or is a virtual appliance installed in the hypervisor


Re: McAfee Agent on VMware Horizon

The agentless version of MOVE uses an virtual applicance on the hypervisor.

The old version of MOVE that was agent based, yes, used actual MOVE servers to do the scanning.

Are you DoD? If so PM me and can trade emails to discuss more if you'd like.


Re: McAfee Agent on VMware Horizon

Ahhh that makes sense on the agent and agentless then. I would image the virtual appliance is the way to go.
