Supported upgrade paths for McAfee Endpoint Security 10.7.x

When upgrading from Endpoint Security version 10.2.x, 10.5.x, or 10.6.x, or from legacy products like VirusScan Enterprise 8.8, the installer saves your custom settings (if that option is selected), removes the existing product software, and installs Endpoint Security 10.7.x.

If McAfee® MVISION Endpoint is installed, the installer removes the product software before installing Endpoint Security, but does not save product settings.

For optimal performance and protection, upgrade all Endpoint Security modules to the latest version.

You can upgrade these products to Endpoint Security 10.7.x:

  • McAfee® Endpoint Security 10.2.x
  • McAfee® Endpoint Security 10.5.x
  • McAfee® Endpoint Security 10.6.x
  • McAfee® VirusScan® Enterprise 8.8
  • McAfee® Host Intrustion Prevention (McAfee Host IPS) 8.0
    Note: Host Intrusion Prevention can run alongside Endpoint Security. Whenever McAfee Host IPS Firewall is installed and enabled, McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention is disabled, even if enabled in the policy settings.
  • McAfee® SiteAdvisor Enterprise 3.5
  • McAfee® Endpoint Security Threat Intelligence 10.2

Best practice: If you are moving to Endpoint Security from a legacy product (VirusScan Enterprise, McAfee Host IPS, SIteAdvisor Enterprise, or Threat Intelligence), run the McAfee® Endpoint Upgrade Assistant. With this tool you can also run the Endpoint Migration Assistant, which saves and converts your existing settings to use with Endpoint Security.
