You need to install EPO on a server. On each client you install a agent which then communicates with the server. You can control policies, pattern/program updates, where clients get their updates from etc etc.
If you have a large number of virusscan machines you should definitely be running EPO. Without it you will be running around like a headless chicken. EPO is the best thing since sliced bread! :)
I don't think they do a trial version though, but check out the docs here:
I've never heard of a trial version of ePO. Which is not surprising since ePO is a free program.
EPo is only free if you have purchased licences for a relevant product suite eg Total Virus Defence ( VSE/groupshield/epo/siteadvisor ent), it is possible to have VSE 8.5 and not have a licence to run EPO.
Although I can't find the links now there were trial versions available not too long ago (I think they were 60 or 90 day)
You should have a grant number for Mcafee from your VSE reseller which should allow you to log into the downloads section and you would then see what products you are licenced for https://secure.nai.com/apps/downloads/my_products/login.asp
As soon as I posted, I wondered if I might be wrong! I should have researched it further. :o Since I've been involved with McAfee, I've always had one of the suites (AVD, then upgraded to TPE-A), so it's always been free to me.
Thanks for clearing it up, Tony!
I'm annoyed though as I used to have a link to the trial but now there doesnt seem to be one, i assume its now contained within the trials of the packages now rather than as an individual piece
I guess you could consider EPO 4.5 to be a trial version, as you can run it for 90 days without a license?
ePO 4.5 requires a license
Total protection for Endpoint should contain ePO
Or just test with the ePO 4.5 beta
Yes, as Tony mentioned, the suites generally will contain ePO. I know for sure that TPE and AVD both have it.
