Planning your installation

To use your McAfee ePO server effectively, create a comprehensive plan specific to your environment.

Considering the unique needs of your environment in advance can reduce the time it takes to get started.

  • How many systems do you manage?
  • Are your systems located in one network or multiple geographic areas?
  • Do you have specific security needs, such as a firewall?
  • Do you use Network Address Translation (NAT) in an external network?
  • Do you have bandwidth restrictions to remote network segments?
  • Do you manage laptops that are connected to the Internet and outside the corporate network?
  • Do you have multiple administrators with different permissions across different products, groups of systems, or different functions within the management console?
