Using client tasks with McAfee MOVE AntiVirus

Use client tasks to automate system management in your McAfee ePO environment. For example, you can configure a client task to deploy product updates, run a scan diagnosis, or run an on-demand scan.

Depending on your permissions, you can use predefined client tasks as is, edit them, or create custom client tasks.

McAfee MOVE AntiVirus adds these predefined client tasks to the Client Task Catalog.

Function Category Description
Client Tasks (Multi-Platform) Restore from Quarantine Performs actions on quarantined items. For example, you can restore an item after downloading a later version of the DAT that contains information that cleans the threat.
Targeted On-Demand Scan Optimizes file scanning for files where the previous scanning is timed out for reasons such as large file size, file structure, and file composition.
Scan Diagnostics Run the scan diagnostic task to easily find frequently scanned files, processes, extensions, and VMs, then use these results to exclude them from being scanned.

A good set of exclusions improves the performance of the virtual infrastructure.

Client Tasks (Agentless) Scan Diagnostics Run the scan diagnostic task to easily find frequently scanned files, extensions, and VMs, then use these results to exclude them from being scanned.
