McAfee Active Response (MAR) 1.x 


MAR 1.x was the first iteration of Endpoint Detection and Response solutions from McAfee, and allowed security analysts to hunt for security incidents in their environment.
The product evolved to automatically discover security incidents as they occur. To provide this capability, MAR continually traces the endpoints in the customer environment for suspicious behaviors and records anomalous activity. This requires that MAR take advantage of the platform capabilities provided by Endpoint Security (ENS) and leverage cloud storage for recording suspicious behaviors. This advancement in architecture means that, going forward, MAR can no longer support non-ENS environments.
Consequently, Product Management has decided to End of Life (EOL) MAR version 1.x.

EOL milestone dates for MAR 1.x:
  • End of Availability: July 17, 2017
  • End of Support: July 17, 2018
  • End of Life: July 17, 2018


Migrate to the latest version of MAR 2.x, which leverages ENS. Migrating to MAR 2.x requires that customers who are using VirusScan Enterprise upgrade to ENS. Only critical updates to MAR 1.x versions will be made available until the EOL date.
