Agentless components

Each component performs specific functions to keep your environment protected.

ePolicy Orchestrator — A management platform that allows you to configure policies to manage Agentless configuration and provides reports on malware discovered in your virtual environment.

Security Virtual Machine (SVM) — The McAfee MOVE AntiVirus service package that provides anti-virus protection for VMs and communicates with the loadable kernel module on the hypervisor, McAfee ePO, and the McAfee GTI servers. The SVM is the only system directly managed by McAfee ePO. Endpoint Security for Linux Threat Prevention, McAfee Agent, and McAfee MOVE AntiVirus (Agentless) are pre-installed.

File Quarantine — Remote quarantine system, where quarantined files are stored on an administrator-specified network share.

McAfee GTI (Global Threat Intelligence) — A comprehensive, real-time, cloud-based threat intelligence service that classifies suspicious files that are found on the file system. When the real-time malware defense detects a suspicious program, it sends a DNS request for analysis to a central database server hosted by McAfee Labs.

VMware vCenter — Console that manages the ESXi servers, which host the guest VMs that require protection.

Hypervisor (ESXi) — A virtual operating platform that allows multiple operating systems to run concurrently on a hosted system. and manages the execution of the guest operating systems. ESXi is an embedded hypervisor for servers that runs directly on server hardware without requiring an extra underlying operating system.

vCloud Networking and Security Manager (vCNS) — A centralized network management component that manages the vShield components for the SVM and VMware vShield Endpoint, and monitors the health of the SVM.

VMware NSX Manager — Console that allows you to configure, provision, and automate the protection on the endpoints in a datacenter.

Virtual Machines (VMs) — Completely isolated guest operating system installations in a normal host operating system that support both virtual desktops and virtual servers.
