Product deployment steps You can deploy product software to your managed systems using automatic or manual configuration methods. The method you choose depends on the level of detail you want to configure to complete the process. The following diagram shows the processes you can use to add and update software on the Master Repository, then deploy that software to your managed systems. Use the Software Catalog to automatically review and update McAfee software and software components. From the Master Repository, you can manually check in deployment packages then use Product Deployment or client tasks to deploy them to your managed systems. The Product Deployment feature offers a simplified workflow and increased functionality to deploy products to your McAfee ePO managed systems. Create client tasks to manually assign and schedule product deployments to groups or individual managed system. Product deployment is the output process that keeps your security software as current as possible to protect your managed systems.
