Updating groupshield

Read CEO Chris Young’s letter about the announcement.Backed by an award-winning research team, security technologies from Mc Afee use a unique, predictive capability that is powered by Mc Afee Global Threat Intelligence—enabling home users and businesses to stay one step ahead of online threats.

If the MSME Update Task performs a DAT update, the Purge DATs Routine (Purge Old Definitions.exe) runs correctly and removes older DAT files that are no longer necessary.

Our award-winning offerings include: Mc Afee solutions deliver the highest levels of threat visibility and antimalware protection, including comprehensive system and endpoint protection, network security, cloud security, database security, endpoint detection and response, and data protection.

Our complete security solutions extend beyond virus software and antimalware protection to server security, SIEM, and intrusion prevention systems (IPS).

By building solutions that work with other companies' products, Mc Afee helps businesses orchestrate cyber environments that are truly integrated, where protection, detection, and correction of threats happen simultaneously and collaboratively.

By protecting consumers across all their devices, Mc Afee secures their digital lifestyle at home and away.

I found both the problem and the solution: Mcafee update so basicly update their Mcafee group shield to the newest service pack and we are all back in buisness..

while I have some limited exchange experience and AD too. I don't wanna crash their server for a week and have them need to get someone to recover it. is it supposedly as easy as to click an 'update' button and to reboot your server..

If you use MSME 8.5 managed by e PO - the MSME 8.5 Extensions provide a specific task which can delete the old dat file folders.

This can be seen by going into e PO - Client Task Catalog - expand the list of tasks under Mc Afee Security for Microsoft Exchange 8.5 the task is named Purge Old Dats Task.

This might be a bit late for you as you asked a good while ago.

But Mc Afee Groupshield (and other Exchange A/V products) talk to Exchange using something called VSAPI; this is provided by Exchange itself () So if Groupshield goes wrong, simply kill it all off and stop the service and Exchange will carry on working (obviously sans virus / spam protection) This gives you some time to sort the issue out properly, without affecting production service.

Backed by Mc Afee Global Threat Intelligence, our solutions help companies enhance visibility into their security postures, allowing business to embrace virtualization, cloud services, and mobile devices, while protecting critical assets and sensitive data, and improving incident response.
