The default McAfee ploicy allows for Policy enforcement to occur every 12 hours . This can be managed to be set to a minimum of 4 hours . A policy check and enforcement does happen every time a system boots up as well
ok thanks, but, what if I need to apply a policy right away for any component?
You will need to install the client passing the policy you want (modified to be 4 hour check in) instead of the default.
Due to the nature of a cloud offering it will need to be a poll based from the client based upon the policy - no more push based from the console.
