Deployment of an NS-series Sensor

Deployment of a Sensor requires knowledge of your network to help determine the level of configuration and the number of installed Sensors. You also need to determine the number of McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® (McAfee® ePO™) servers required to protect your network. The Sensor is purpose-built for the monitoring of traffic across one or more network segments.

Following is an example of a network topology using Gigabit Ethernet throughput. In the illustration, McAfee® Network Security Platform (formerly McAfee® IntruShield® ) provides IPS protection to outsourced servers. High port-density and virtualization provides a highly scalable solution, while Network Security Platform protects against Web and eCommerce mail server exploits.
