Installation overview

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.

The components are a client module for Endpoint Security, a server for file and certificate reputation storage, and McAfee® Data Exchange Layer (DXL) brokers for bidirectional communication between managed systems on a network.
