Managing the software with McAfee ePO and McAfee ePO Cloud Integrate and manage McAfee Endpoint Security for Linux using the McAfee ePO or McAfee ePO Cloud platform. The primary differences in managing policies in two environments are: McAfee ePO — Organizations maintain a McAfee ePO server in their premises. Administrators check in and install the software on the server, create policy settings, and enforce them on multiple managed systems using deployment tasks. McAfee ePO Cloud — McAfee or the service provider maintains the McAfee ePO server, including checking in and installing the software. After setting up the cloud account from McAfee or another service provider, local administrators create policies and enforce them on managed systems using deployment tasks. For instructions about setting up and using McAfee ePO and McAfee Agent, see the product guide for your version of the product.
