Thanks, so should I just run end point protection on my Mac?
Yeah, endpoint protection is basically virus protection for MAC, but doesn't have all the same features as VSE would.
I deployed Endpoint Protection and it's currently has a pending status. I'm assuming it's doing its thing. I didn't mess around with the the policies and used the default ones.
Do I need to go on the terminal and restart services?
So, HIPS isn't supported on Mac, but the Endpoint Protection product does have a Desktop Firewall module similar to the HIPS firewall.
I don't remember having to restart post-installation - though, I'd have to jump on my lab to test/review.
I see the McAfee Endpoint Protection Application but I'm having issues opening it.
I get the following error below:
