    Can DAT Reputation Be Removed After ENS Is Deployed?

    csavage

      After deploying ENS 10.2 via ePO to Windows workstations that had VirusScan Enterprise 8.8 installed on them, I notice that McAfee DAT Reputation Service (MCDATREP1000) version 1.0.4 is still installed at the endpoints.

       

      Can the McAfee DAT Reputation Service (MCDATREP1000) be removed from endpoints, after VSE is replaced by ENS Threat Protection?

       

      Or is the McAfee DAT Reputation Service still needed to power the AMCore Content Reputation function in ENS?

      I wrote the above on Oct 5.  I did some tests later that day and answered the question for myself.  Here is what I found:

       

      The product McAfee DAT Reputation Service remains as part of the McAfee Agent (apparently) and cannot be removed by itself.  McAfee DAT Reputation Service does not appear as a product that can be selected for removal in ePO, and it does not appear in Windows as an installed program.  So it stays.
