VirusScan Enterprise for Storage (VSES) expands VSE capabilities by providing remote scanning of NetApp filers and Internet Content Adaptation Protocol (ICAP) storage appliances. You can configure it from the VSE Console or use ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) to centrally manage and enforce policies, then use queries and dashboards to track activity and detections.
- A version of most of the following information is available in the relevant product installation guides and readme.txt files. However, the original McAfee product and installation guides are unlikely to reflect the most recent McAfee support policy for those platforms because Microsoft releases new operating systems or service packs on a regular basis.
- This article aims to contain the latest information. Some of this is made available via linked Product Management statements, which are also published in the McAfee KnowledgeBase.
- Support for operating system service packs is generally synchronized with these service packs being supported by their manufacturer.
- McAfee updates the supportability information for each new Microsoft Windows operating system after this has been released to manufacturing and within 30 days of that release.
