The common management agent CMA is an agent based on each machine that updatesand installs of mcafee products to the machine from a PP or EPO system and maintains policies for VSE and other products as set by that Management server. The agent reports back information on updates, malware etc to the management server.
You dont need EPO for 10 machines this would be massive overkill (and very expensive)
NB CMA/Mcafee agent/EPO agent are all the same thing,the Mcafee agent is the latest incarnation that they are moving towards
Sorry to hi jack this thread, but is there a better alternative to PP, for 10-30 or so users, then, Tony?
Yes there is a small business solution for 10-50/100 (depends which bit you read) but it uses a web based central control and everyone I have ever heard use it hates it.
Single centralized management console
