Though you can't perform 'inline' updates per se you can easily package a new version, identify out of date endpoints and target them with a policy.
Also, if moving to an entirely different product is in the cards, Bit Defender is worth exploring.
Trend takes care of a few of your pain points listed below.
All clients get the definitions from the same location that i have seen.
Most of the Mac alerts are what i call "virus carriers" that won't effect the mac but will pass to windows if not removed.
The windows side i can't speak to much as its not my world anymore. Trend definitely doesn't tax the system like Mc Afee seems to on your side.
Mac clients do not get their definitions from the SEP server. Regards, Kamal We're using Mc Afee Endpoint Protection. If we don't exclude everything, then the computers become unusable.
With every major OS release there needs to be a server upgrade and client upgrade The management console is stupid to say the least And the list goes on. And to make matters worse, they are dictating that we ALSO install ECAT.
The new version was previewed and looks much better as far as look and feel, usability adds some features also. Mac and Windows clients do not have the same feature set, it is much more comprehensive on Windows.
- Windows does have a few different features which i can't think of right now...
Hi Folks, As the subject suggests, I am trying to get a feel for what people are using for Anti-virus/spyware/malware etc solutions and what made you choose it/them.
For many years now we have been using Symantec Endpoint Protection and so far it has been OK, but only just.
Updates to XProtect definitions are delivered along with other Apple software updates automatically (as long as you have your clients set to check for software updates. The best thing you can do on OS X is to make sure you have a way of quickly and regularly applying software & security updates that Apple makes available.
