Migration overview When you upgrade your legacy products to McAfee® Endpoint Security, McAfee® Endpoint Security for Mac, and McAfee® Endpoint Security for Linux, you can also migrate your custom settings and assignments. The Endpoint Migration Assistant guides you through the migration process. The Migration Assistant migrates settings in environments managed with McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® (McAfee® ePO™) version 5.1.1 or later. Product settings that you can migrate Endpoint Security enables you to migrate settings for the most recent versions of supported McAfee legacy products installed on your Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms. Types of migration You can let Migration Assistant migrate all your settings and assignments automatically, based on your current settings and new product defaults, or you can select and configure them manually. What happens to policies during migration Endpoint Security optimizes and consolidates legacy products into an integrated, efficient new platform. In addition to new and enhanced features that leverage the latest developments in security technology, a new McAfee® Endpoint Security Platform (also known as McAfee® Endpoint Security Common) module centralizes the shared protection features so they are easily accessible by all product modules. As a result, some of the policy settings you are familiar with in legacy products have changed. Upgrade legacy software with migrated settings workflow When upgrading legacy products to Endpoint Security, you can optionally save (or migrate) your custom settings using Endpoint Migration Assistant. Overview of migration tasks As part of the workflow for upgrading a legacy version of the software, use McAfee Endpoint Migration Assistant to migrate your custom settings to Endpoint Security policies before upgrading your legacy software.
