McAfee ePO Deep Command

McAfee ePO Deep Command

Reducing the cost of security operations beyond the OS

Next Steps:


McAfee ePO Deep Command provides secure and remote security management access to PCs that may be powered off or disabled. ePO Deep Command utilizes Intel® vPro™ Active Management Technology (AMT) to deliver beyond the operating system management, reducing security operations costs while enhancing your security posture. Using Intel vPro AMT, ePO Deep Command enables secure remote access regardless of the PC’s power or encrypted state so security administrators can remotely remediate compromised systems, enable energy-saving initiatives, wake systems, and apply proactive security.

By communicating with endpoints at a level beyond the operating system, ePO Deep Command allows security administrators to configure and remediate hard-to-manage endpoints from a central site, using an established and familiar management platform — McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator.

Deploy security ahead of an attack — Switch on the powered-off PCs to keep them up-to-date by installing the latest security updates, patches, service packs, and other important security tasks. You can even schedule a time to switch on your AMT systems using the AMT Alarm Clock feature.

Reduce end user impact — Conduct intensive security tasks during off hours by waking up PCs to run scans without affecting end users' performance.

Reduce power while maintaining control — Decrease power consumption by encouraging and enforcing power-off policies, knowing that those systems are available for remote security control.

Quickly remediate endpoints — Whether the PC is local or remote, the administrator can connect to the disabled PC via Intel AMT to conduct secure remote remediation.

Features & Benefits

Discover and simplify Intel AMT provisioning

Streamline and reduce effort to discover and provision Intel AMT to allow customers to quickly take advantage of McAfee ePO Deep Command on Intel vPro-based PCs.

Wake and execute security

Conduct security maintenance or time-intensive tasks during off hours without impacting productivity. Using the AMT Alarm Clock, security administrators can power on and wake up a PC to execute a defined series of security tasks.

Remotely remediate disabled endpoints

Connect to the disabled PC via Intel® vPro™ Active Management Technology (AMT), whether the PC is local or remote, to conduct a remote boot from another boot image on the network.

Get full remote PC control from ePO

Securely extend the reach of remote remediation with full support of KVM and be able to completely control the remote PC’s keyboard, video, and mouse to greatly simplify remediation capabilities.

Conduct Remote Encryption Management

Wake up encrypted PCs with McAfee encryption and conduct security tasks or other updates without the user being involved to authenticate the encryption software. Requires McAfee Endpoint Encryption 7.0.

Maintain security visibility while lowering costs

Wake PCs, update policies, and return them to lower power states to save energy and pursue industry incentives to cut power consumption without compromising security.

Deploy security ahead of the threat

Protect endpoints ahead of emerging threats. You can update systems before a potential breach and remotely activate countermeasures without impacting productivity.

Unlock the Power of Intel vPro

Use the McAfee ePO Deep Command Discovery and Reporting module to discover Intel vPro AMT-capable PCs in your environment. Detailed reports ensure you know exactly what PCs you can deploy the ePO Deep Command agent.
