RE: Huh?

Source was the key technical speaker at the recent Australian Partner Symposium.... I will drop them an email with a link to this forum. I am interested to see the response.

RE: Rogue System Detection in ePO4.0

I believe McafeeNAC is about to be released to replace RSD

RE: Rogue System Detection in ePO4.0

From what I last heard, the RSD project was to be replaced by NAC, but they decided to separate the two out again and RSD will remain its own. I thought that NAC was going to have some integrations using RSD as the core but did not mean you had to have NAC in order to have RSD. This was what I heard in the early beta of RSD 2.0 I was on and things may have changed.

RE: Rogue System Detection in ePO4.0

MNAC 3.0 is available since a few weeks. It has ePO 4.0 integration and replaces the RSD system.
The RSD sensors have inherited a few functions like DHCP detection from the earlier NAC sensors - so fore the sensor part the systems are almost the same. But NAC has much more functionality else the RSD component. Never heard that they would stop publishing RSD as for NAC you have to pay wink

RE: Rogue System Detection in ePO4.0

I also thought I heard that NAC was being incorporated into a new Intrushield version...? Anyone have any info on this?

RE: ePO 4.0 is released

> Hello,
> McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator 4.0 is now available for download to licensed
customers from the McAfee Download site:
> *Overview
> - ePolicy Orchestrator 4.0 provides a scalable platform for centralized policy
management and
> enforcement of your security products and the systems on which they reside. It
also provides
> comprehensive reporting and product deployment capabilities, all through a single
point of
> control.
> *New Features
> - Web-based console
> -- The ePolicy Orchestrator software has moved from the Microsoft Management
Console (MMC) to a web-based architecture.
> - Query system
> -- The ePolicy Orchestrator software now includes a native query and report
system. Included with this release are default queries and the Query Builder
wizard, which allows you to easily create and edit queries. Unlike reports in
previous versions, results are actionable. For example, you can run a query on
systems whose agents haven't communicated with the server in a certain amount of
time, then send an agent wake up call to those systems. Additionally, queries can
be run on a schedule.
> - Multi-server rollup reporting
> -- If you are running multiple ePO servers, you can now run a query against
summary data from each. By registering the other ePO servers with the local one
and running a data roll-up server task, summary data is retrieved and ready for
queries based on any of the rolled-up data result types of the querying system.
> - Dashboards
> -- Easily create dashboards that contain multiple monitors. Create monitors for
any chart-based query, or select one of the default monitors included with this
> - Active Directory synchronization
> -- Create, populate, and update the System Tree structure with your Active
Directory structure and system placement.
> - Tags
> -- Tags are like labels you assign (one or more) to one or more systems manually
or based on criteria at agent-server communication. With tags, you can
automatically place systems in the System Tree based on any combination of system
properties by using criteria-based tags and parallel sorting criteria.
Additionally, you can create and run queries on systems based on the tags applied
to them.
> - Permission sets
> -- With this release, you can assign very granular sets of permissions > -> for
products and features > -> to any user.
> - Chainable server tasks
> -- With this release, you can chain server task actions and subactions within a
single task. For example, you can schedule a single server task that runs a pull
task, followed by a replication task, and then runs a query against the update
status of the distributed repositories and send the results to you via email.
> - Platform support
> -- Support for SQL 2005 Native Mode has been added.
> -- Support for VMware Virtual Infrastructure 3 (ESX Server 3.0.x) and Microsoft
Virtual Server 2005 R2 has been added.
> -- The complete user interface is now available in the Simplified Chinese,
Traditional Chinese, and Korean languages.
> - Clustering

cluster as part of a first-time installation, see the installation guide. For
instructions on installing a cluster as part of an upgrade, see article KB 613778

Unsupport products in ePO 4.0

In our environment, VirusScan 4.5.1 and Desktop Firewall 8.5 deployed will no longer supported by ePO 4.0. That means I have to wait for the decommission of all Windows 9x machines and choose to use other firewall product before upgrade to ePO 4.0.

RE: Unsupport products in ePO 4.0

Well, Virusscan 4.5.1 is of course a very old product. I think few companies that want an EPO also run Windows 9x client PC's.

But SCM 4.5 (and SCM 4.22 for our appliance 3100) and HIPS 6.0.1 are current products, but also not supported by the new EPO. This can not be! Only a beta version of HIPS 7 is supported, but who would want a beta product to run on client PC's? I think currently EPO 4 is a dissapointing and useless product.
