McAfee Agent/CMS/EPO Agent

Ok Ok,

I am totally confused :confused:

I am in the process of upgrading several McAfee Products. As it stands just now we are using the following products:

EPO 3.6.1 Patch 2
Virusscan Enterprise 8.5i
EPO Agent 3.6.0

I have the upgrade guides and installation files for upgrading the EPO to version 4.0.0 Patch 2 and Virusscan Enterprise 8.7i. My problem is this, when I originally upgraded the EPO Agent to 3.6.0 from whatever was the previous version, it was called EPO Agent, which was fine. Now that I want to upgrade to the newest version, there seems to be this new item called McAfee Agent (which I have read was previously called the CMA). My question is this, what is the EPO Agent now called and what is the most current version?

I am well confused!!!!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
