Installation overview

You must install the components for Threat Intelligence Exchange manually after Endpoint Security installation is complete to manage Threat Intelligence Exchange features from VirusScan Enterprise.

The TIE server is a real-time adaptive prevention provider that gives customers the power of knowledge by telling them what is malicious, trusted, and unknown in their environment, where it was used and when. Installing the Threat Intelligence components as McAfee ePO extensions, you can manage TIE features for enterprise-wide protection against new emerging and discovered threats within milliseconds.

Consider this basic first-time installation workflow.

The components are a client module for Endpoint Security, a server for file and certificate reputation storage, and DXL brokers for bidirectional communication between managed systems on a network.

As a McAfee ePO administrator, you can install the TIE Server appliance using an OVA or an ISO file on a Virtual Machine (VM) before you deploy the DXL brokers. For your endpoints, you install the TIE client module and the DXL client you need. To complete the installation, you need to configure the operation mode of the TIE server and assign its policies.

For a basic upgrade scenario consider this workflow.
