Enforcing policies

A policy is a collection of settings that you create and configure, then enforce.

McAfee ePO organizes its policies by product, then by categories in each product. For example, McAfee Agent includes categories for General, Repository, and Troubleshooting.

To see policies in a specific policy category, select MenuPolicyPolicy Catalog, then select a product and category from the drop-down lists. The Policy Catalog page displays only policies for products that the user has permissions to.

Each category includes two default policies, McAfee Default and My Default. You can't delete, edit, export, or rename these policies, but you can copy them and edit the copy.

For example, you might want to change the default response time that managed systems communicate back to the McAfee ePO server.
