The minimum software you should have besides the agent is an antivirus product, such as VSE or ENS (ens threat prevention is preferable).  As for web control, firewall or any other software, that is dependent on the needs of your environment, how you want to protect your systems, what you want to protect them from, etc.

all our products are good 🙂 , it really depends on your needs.

The Mcafee agent is the mediator between the point products (such an antivirus) and our ePO server which is the management console which is our centralized management console for policies task...etc

If you want to manage those servers with Mcafee agent and a point product then yes

i currently have the agent installed via the EPO but do i need all other products like endpoint security threat prevention, web control and adaptive threat protection. not much is being used or installed on the server so wondering if just the basic products is enough and which ones would be recommended?
