    Unrecognised programs list missing

      As of August, our security center is no longer reporting unrecognised programs in the unrecognised programs list.

       

      ie there are plenty for al lother months and none for august. ie no firewall blocked profams as the filter on the unrecognised programs report.

       

      I assume something has went wrong as nothing else has changed with our configuration

       

      Is anone else noticing this?

       

      Thanks

          I would like to inform you that we have released the new version of SaaS EndPoint Protection  5.2.2 on Aug 4, all the customers will have an ability to schedule the upgrade through security center from .

            Geetha,

             

            How will we know when its working? We have been having problems with this functionality for months. We have scheduled all of our systems to get the update as soon as possible, but the last reported "Unrecognized Program" is still from 7/21.

             

            Thanks,

              We have upgraded some machines. Still no unrecognised programs list.

               

              Not only that, the clients are not responding to changes in desktop policy, eg firewall. So we cant even get in to the machine to disable the firewall or change the connection status.

               

              I despair with this product. These issues happen over and over and over again.

               

              Everytime an update happens, ecverything breaks.

               

              Attrocious. Sorry but thats just how we feel.

               

              What do we do now?

               

              Let me guess from McAfee - unistall and reinstall tyhe product on all of our 60 nodes.

               

              I give up

                  Argint,

                   

                  We have had ongoing problems with the unrecognized program list being incomplete or not updating. It has made us afraid to install or update software for fear that McAfee will block it but not allow us the opportunity to Allow it through the web SecurityCenter. It is almost like the firewall is blocking their own software. We have not had much luck with support (it took a long time to get them to even understand or believe there was a problem). However, they said it would be fixed in the most recent update. We had a whole bunch of programs show up in the list over the weekend, so we'll see how it works. However, if they don't have a good handle on it by the time our subscription is up, we'll probably make a switch.

                    Hi Indyvql,

                     

                    We are currently rolling out patch 5.2.2 that resolves most of these issues. Please check for this upgrade and see if your current McAfee software has been upgraded to McAfee 5.2.2. Then please check the working of the firewall and program list.

                     

                    Regards

                    Pritish P.

                      Pritish,

                       

                      We have applied patch 5.2.2 to all machines. It seems that our Unrecognized Programs list is starting to show programs again, so maybe this patch has resolved the problem.

                       

                      Thanks,

                          Geetha,

                           

                          Just as a follow up. For a couple days, it seemed like it was reporting programs properly. But now it has gone back to just notifying people that their program is blocked, but never showing up in the Unrecognized Program list (or anywhere else in SecurityCenter). This continues to be a nightmare for us.

                           

                          Thanks,

                          indyvql
