Using Endpoint Security extensions as common extensions

Use the latest Endpoint Security extensions as common extensions to manage Threat Prevention policies and tasks on your Microsoft Windows, Macintosh, and Linux systems.

You can use Endpoint Security extensions to configure and deploy policies for your Windows, Macintosh and Linux systems. On each policy page, a tag indicates that the option applies only to specific operating systems. For example:

  • Windows only — Applies only to Windows-based systems.
  • Linux only — Applies only to Linux-based systems.
  • Windows and Mac only — Applies only to Windows and Macintosh-based systems.
  • Windows and Linux only — Applies only to Windows and Linux-based systems.

The policy options without tags are applicable to Windows, Mac, and Linux systems.

Note: To view these tags in the policy and task options, you must have installed the licensing extension on your McAfee ePO server.

For the list of features supported for each operating system, see McAfee KnowledgeBase article KB84410.
