I think endpoint protection for mac includes a firewall which VScan doesn't.
Here lists some exclusions- Main ones are the Outlook identity folders and vmdk's
Thank you for the quick response. 2.1 doesn't have a firewall but just noticed that 2.2 does. I will take a look at those suggested exclusions which may help. I may just go with ViruScan as long as I can manage it successfully from ePO. Thank you.
To be honest i think it depends on what product you have purchased. I have VirusScan for Mac 9.7 which uses all the same extensions for EPM 2.2 and shows up as 2.2 (or 9.7 depending on what column header you use in the console), but i have no firewall, but EPM clearly states it has a firewall.
It depends if you want to use the Application Protect and Firewall capabilities of the product.
We have EPM but have only deployed the Antivirus and Antimalware components using a Client Task.
We found that deploying the Firewall increased our admin efforts to continually maintain the firewall policy, since by default the firewall block all incoming connections.
If you are only looking for Anti Malware you can deploy just "McAfee Endpoint Protection for Mac - AV 188.8.131.528" rather than "McAfee Endpoint Protection for Mac 184.108.40.2068"
You mentioned that Endpoint Protection 2.1 is compatible with ePO 5.1.1, which is what KB79169 McAfee KnowledgeBase - ePO 5.1 supported products indicates. However, if you go to the support page for Endpoint Protection KB78694 https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB78694, it says that only 2.2 is supported with ePO 5.1.1. Is anybody using 2.1 with 5.1.1?
