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 Menu → Policy → Policy 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. About policiesA policy is a collection of settings that you create and configure, then enforce. Policy assignment rules Policy assignments rules reduce the overhead of managing numerous policies and help maintain more generic policies across your System Tree. Move and share policies between McAfee ePO serversIn environments with multiple McAfee ePO servers, you can move and share policies to avoid re-creating them on each server. Policy management users You can assign different permission sets to different policy users, so that they can create and modify specific product policies. Some users can approve or deny changes from policies submitted by other users. Assign policies to managed systemsAssign policies to a group or to specific systems in the System Tree. You can assign policies before or after a product is deployed.
