Which type of installation do you need?

Install McAfee® Data Loss Prevention (McAfee DLP) software as a first-time installation or upgrade in McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® (McAfee® ePO™) on an on-premises, VDI, or AWS server. Deploy the McAfee® Device Control or McAfee® Data Loss Prevention Endpoint (McAfee DLP Endpoint) client software as a first-time installation or upgrade on network endpoints.



McAfee DLP Endpoint software has two parts:

  • McAfee DLP extension
    • Installs in McAfee ePO
    • Defines rules and policies
    • Monitors and analyzes incidents and operational events
    • Manages cases
  • McAfee DLP Endpoint client
    • Installs as a client in McAfee® Agent on network endpoints
    • Enforces rules and policies
    • Collects evidence

McAfee DLP Endpoint client software is available in two configurations:

  • McAfee Data Loss Prevention and McAfee® Device Control — Protects against data loss through the broadest set of data-loss channels: removable devices, non-system hard disks, email or email attachments, web posts, clipboard or screen capture, printing, file system, and more.
  • McAfee® Device Control — Protects against data loss by preventing unauthorized use of removable media devices.

There is no difference in the installation between the configurations. Both client configurations are available for installation on Microsoft Windows and OS X or macOS computers.
