Installation Threat Intelligence Exchange has these major components: a TIE server and a client for either McAfee Endpoint Security or for VirusScan Enterprise. Install each component in the order presented here. When you are finished, these items are added to your network: TIE server extension Threat Intelligence Exchange client module Installing the TIE server in FIPS mode Installing TIE server in Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) mode follows the same basic procedure described in this guide. But FIPS mode installation requires a McAfee ePO server operating in FIPS mode. See the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator FIPS Mode User Guide at https://support.mcafee.com/. Important: The FIPS mode in the TIE server can't be changed after the installation. Upgrading the TIE server doesn't change the operation mode of FIPS. System requirements Make sure that your system environment meets these requirements and that you have administrator rights.
