Using permission sets

Permission sets define rights for managed product functionality in McAfee ePO.

Adaptive Threat Protection adds the Adaptive Threat Protection and Adaptive Threat Protection Query permission groups to each permission set.

Permission groups define the access rights to the features. McAfee ePO grants all permissions for all products and features to global administrators. Administrators then assign user roles to existing permission sets or create new permission sets.

Your managed product adds these permission controls to McAfee ePO.
