Re: Policy Manager Next Version

Hello,

 

You could re-export the F-Secure Client Security's .JAR file as pre-configured .MSI file from the F-Secure Policy Manager Console. Then use that package in a GPO (Active Directory, Group Policy Object) distribution command.

 

That way endpoint computers can be remotely installed with F-Secure Client Security 12, without first having to turn off the defensive features in modern Windows OS!

 

( In Win 7/8/10 some risky Win 2000/XP era left-overs, like the remote registry service, the admin dollar share, the 135-139 network ports are not available by default, but they would be necessary for the legacy "push" based installation method. If you enable these, you computer can be infected more easily, but the meaning of an anti-virus product installation would be to strenghten the security of the computer...

 

In fact, I think F-Secure Corp. could remove the "push" method from the PMC console, because it has no actual uses now that Windows XP is no longer supported in endpoint protection. )

The RTM of Policy Manager version 12.10 is currently planned for the second quarter of 2016.

 

Which kind of improvement on remote installation would you like to see in our product?

Are you currently facing a problem with this functionality?

Re: Policy Manager Next Version

Hi Ben

We have some problems in remote installation through Auto discover windows hosts. as our colleague said this is not recommended for more than 20 hosts.

https://community.f-secure.com/t5/Business/F-Secure-Client-Security-and/ta-p/20654

I wish this feature improve to work better than now.
Now I'm working on SCCM for push installation files in large size networks.

Thanks
