Environment

McAfee Network Access Control (MNAC) 4.0, 3.x

Summary

As Microsoft releases new operating systems or service packs, the original McAfee product guides might not reflect the current McAfee support policy for those platforms. Most of the following information is available in the product installation guides and Readme.txt files. However, some of the information is available only in Product Management Statements published in the McAfee KnowledgeBase.


Microsoft Windows supported operating systems
The following tables detail the McAfee products supported for use on Windows workstation and server operating systems. Only the most current versions are included because most customers upgrade to the latest service packs shortly after they are released.


MNAC Server software requirements
The hardware requirements for the MNAC manager and all server-side components are the same as for the ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) 4.x server. For best performance, use the recommended hardware configuration for an ePO server, rather than the minimum configuration.


Release date/build information
Sales of MNAC ended in 2013, and the product reached End of Support on April 15, 2014. To replace MNAC, McAfee has selected ForeScout as a strategic partner to provide ForeScout CounterACT, which is a McAfee-integrated MNAC solution. For more information, including the ForeScout CounterACT Migration Document, see KB76610.
