|Step 1: Plan Your Migration|
Start by conducting a thorough planning exercise, identifying a set of initial considerations to assist you with upgrade planning.
Discuss your current network and systems architecture, and ensure participants and stakeholders possess a high-level understanding of the McAfee Endpoint Security platform.
Perform an assessment of your current production environment configuration to provide guidance and recommendations for your upgrade.
Choose your path: Do you want to retain any current settings and assignments for your legacy products?
|Step 2: Deploy Your New Endpoint Security|
Install, configure, upgrade, and validate the McAfee solution in a non-production environment.
Perform validation testing to verify your McAfee products are functional, blocking and monitoring activity, and producing logs and events, which are viewable on client systems and from the McAfee ePO console.
Migrate existing policies. Before fully deploying the new McAfee Endpoint Security software to your organization, pilot it in a test environment. Once the pilot test is complete, deploy throughout your organization. McAfee recommends following your organization’s practices for submitting change requests, performing system backups, and developing a recovery plan.
|Step 3: Optimize Your New Endpoint Security|
Ensure your McAfee Endpoint Security solution is aligned with business processes and remains tuned through periodic assessments.
