Supported upgrade paths

These are the possible upgrade paths from your current version of the McAfee Advanced Threat Defense software to the latest McAfee Advanced Threat Defense 4.4.0.

Important:
  • We recommend you upgrade your McAfee Advanced Threat Defense during downtime.
  • To upgrade to McAfee Advanced Threat Defense 4.4, you need to follow the migration process. For more information, see McAfee Advanced Threat Defense 4.4 Migration Guide.
  • The migration process allows you to backup and restore the data, configurations, and certificates on your appliance.
  • The migration process is applicable only if your current McAfee Advanced Threat Defense version is 4.0.x. If your appliance uses a previous version, you can choose one of the following:
    • follow the upgrade path table to upgrade to 4.0.x, then use the migration process to upgrade to 4.4. In this process, your data is backed up and restored.
    • do a clean install of the operating system and then install 4.4. In this process, you lose all the data on your appliance. For more information, see McAfee Advanced Threat Defense Installation Guide for 4.4.
