New features

This release of the product includes these new features.

Automatic product installation

When installing McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® for the first time, the McAfee ePO™ server automatically installs your security products so you don't have to install them manually.

Once the ePolicy Orchestrator installation is complete, the McAfee ePO server downloads the product extensions and packages that your license entitles you to, and installs them on the master repository of McAfee ePO server. You can monitor the progress of the automatic product installation if you log on to your McAfee ePO server before the product installation is complete.

NoteYou must have a valid license key to take advantage of automatic product installation.

Simplified deployment

Leverage default policies and McAfee® Agent deployment URLs to rapidly protect your network environment after you've installed your McAfee ePO software. Look at the default dashboard to see the security products deployed in your network, and to view information about using your software.

Tag grouping

Group tags to simplify creating policies, tasks, queries, and responses.

Tag groups and individual tags appear in hierarchies similar to the System Tree. You can create and edit tags and tag groups as needed, and search for or filter tags on the Tag Catalog page.

Installation instructions

For information about installing or upgrading ePolicy Orchestrator software, see the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator Installation Guide.
